Welcome to the Renmin Law School LL.M. Program in Chinese Law website.
With its long history, rich culture, accomplished scholars, distinguished alumni, and outstanding students, Renmin Law School offers an extraordinary environment in which to study law. As the first institution of higher legal education in the Peopleí»s Republic of China, the Law School has made significant contributions to the development of rule of law in the PRC and to expanding the boundaries of Chinese legal education.
Since adoption of the reform-and-opening-up policy in the 1980s, China has witnessed rapid economic growth and played an increasingly essential role in the international community. In the context of globalization and regional integration, China has actively participated in international trade and commerce. Thus, an increasing number of overseas students and legal professionals have been seeking proper opportunities to learn about Chinese Law. With instruction fully in English, the LL.M. Program in Chinese Law offered by Renmin Law School provides a unique opportunity for students from abroad, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan. All eligible candidates from different legal systems and professional backgrounds are welcome. Previous LL.M. Program students have come from all walks of life: lawyers working in firms, government officials, senior managers, senior consultants, directors, business men and women and others. The diversity of the participants in the LL.M. program has played an active role in the educational experience of all students at the School.
The teaching faculties in the LL.M. Program have extraordinary academic credentials. Most have experience studying and/or teaching in leading Law Schools in the most prestigious Universities, such as Harvard, Yale, Oxford and Cambridge. They all have deep understandings of both western law and Chinese Law. At the same time, Renmin Law School also offers valuable internship opportunities in top law firms and other institutions for students to achieve their career planning.
