A fundamental law that aims to protect people's civil rights was submitted to China's top legislature for deliberation on Wednesday.

If adopted on March 15, the draft general provisions of civil law will bring the country a step closer to its long-awaited unified civil code.

Experts said the draft law, discussed at the annual NPC session, lays down basic principles for the protection of civil rights and properties, and the responsibilities and liabilities of those engaged in civil suits.
