The Master of Laws (LL.M.) Program in Chinese Law, a two-year English Graduate program offered by Renmin Law School, has a focus on Chinese Civil and Business Law, with English as the instruction language.

Founded in 1950, Renmin Law School became the first leading institution of higher legal education in the People,s Republic of China. Renowned as the “cradle” of law education and outstanding jurists in China, Renmin Law School creates a high-level platform for law education and law exchange between China and the rest of the world. Over the past six decades, Renmin Law School has made lasting contributions to the development of legal education and rule of law in China. Renmin Law School prepares students not only to master the minutiae of the law, but also to lead as global citizens ready and able to tackle some of the world,s most challenging problems.

Recently, China has witnessed rapid economic growth and rising international prestige. Therefore, Chinese law has become an essential source of knowledge as well as a valuable instrument for international students and legal professionals who have business, cultural, academic and political communication with China. Thus, Renmin Law School has established the LL.M. Program in Chinese Law to meet the needs of the international community to gain an inside view of Chinese law from a first-rate legal institution in China.

The duration of the program is 2 years (4 semesters), starting in September and finishing two years later in July. The first year is full time course-work with class attendance. The second year is thesis writing, legal practice and internship. The LL.M. Program offers valuable internship opportunities to work in law firms and other legal institutions in China to help students apply their theoretical knowledge in practice.
