There are many reasons as to why China doesn't go to UNCLOS to settle the SCS disputes even thought she is a signatory, albeit with many provisions, of the ruling body. One of the reason is that she wasn't an active participant in drafting the rules of UNCLOS, as she should because her size, population and as a permanent member of the Security Council. No strong and dignify are bounded by the rules made by others.
So if the US can use her superpower status to skirt the UNCLOS, China can also cites she was a non draftee of rules thus she doesn't trust such rules. In another word, it's not an argument between China and the other five claimants of SCS, rather it's a standoff between China and the US.
China is tell the US: We'll abide to the rules only after you put your signature to do the same.
What happened to the phrase "we beat the US during the Vietnam War when they were already a super power" ?

It was India who went to UN on Kashmir,else history would be anything else..
At this stage Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru decided to ask UN to intervene. A UN cease-fire was arranged for the 31 December 1948. A few days before the cease-fire the Pakistanis launched a counter attack, which cut the road between Uri and Poonch. After protracted negotiations a cease-fire was agreed to by both countries, which came into effect. The terms of the cease-fire as laid out in a United Nations resolution of August 13, 1948, were adopted by the UN on January 5, 1949. This required Pakistan to withdraw its forces, both regular and irregular, while allowing India to maintain minimum strength of its forces in the state to preserve law and order. On compliance of these conditions a plebiscite was to be held to determine the future of the territory. In all, 1,500 soldiers died on each side during the war and Pakistan was able to acquire roughly two-fifths of Kashmir, including five of the fourteen eight thousanders plus peaks of the world, while India maintained the remaining three fifths of Kashmir, including the most populous and fertile regions.
