The Organic Law of Village Committees of the People's Republic of China (Chinese: 中华人民共和国村民委员会组织法; pinyin: Zhōnghuá Rénmín Gònghéguó cūnmín wěiyuánhuì zǔzhīfǎ) consists of 30 articles about self-governance, self-education and elections in Chinese villages.

The Organic Law of Village Committees sets the rules and regulations under which the Chinese villagers may govern their villages as well as terms and conditions for village elections.

After a trial implementation in 1987 the Organic Law of Village Committees was fully adopted in 1998 by the National People’s Congress of China.
