2019 Summer Honors Program is Accepting Applications
Peking University School of Transnational Law (STL), on PKU’s Shenzhen Graduate Campus, is the only law school in the world that combines an American-style Juris Doctor degree (J.D.) with a China law Juris Master degree (J.M.). STL provides an academically rigorous, bilingual program of legal education that prepares students for the mixture of Common Law, civil law, and Chinese legal traditions increasingly characteristic of the global economy.
We invite you to experience STL’s cutting-edge program by joining our 2019 Summer Honors Program (SHP). At SHP, you will be:
- Challenged in dynamic classroom discussions with STL’s leading multinational faculty and an elite group of fellow students with whom you will develop lifelong memories;
- Introduced to an entirely different way of thinking by STL’s unique method of instruction—the Socratic Method;
- Inspired by the exciting and diverse career paths of STL graduates and motivated by the drive and achievements of STL students and faculty;
- Empowered by the confidence you will develop as a result of expanding your cross-cultural awareness and understanding; and
- Welcomed by STL’s warm and open community.
