- China has experienced significant developments in the construction of the rule of law (RoL) regarding land and resources which led to a series of remarkable achievements. The legal system regarding land and resources is now basically complete. However, the construction of the RoL regarding state land administration is still far from meeting practical needs. The removal of these shortcomings requires a scientific, systematic and quantitative evaluation of the state of the RoL regarding land and resources. To improve legal oversight in land administration, this paper introduces the development and application of a rule of law index (RoLI) for the evaluation of state land administration, which provides a theoretical basis and methodological guidance for the systematic evaluation of the RoL regarding land and resources by the Ministry of Land and Resources. The construction of the RoL regarding state land administration is of great significance for the promotion of legal oversight in the course of urbanization in modern China and worldwide.
