STL Welcomes New Students from China and Abroad

Peking University School of Transnational Law (“STL”) began the 2019-2020 academic year by welcoming new students from throughout China and around the world. The new class includes 151 students in the Common Law J.D. and China Law J.M. dual degree program, along with 11 LL.M and several exchange students from different countries, including Canada, Norway, Germany, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and Argentina. Overall, STL hit a new record for student enrollment.

In order to help students to get used to the teaching mode and regulations of STL, STL held a series of activities on August 9 -11, including a welcome ceremony, theme lecture, current student experience exchange, professor symposium, case study seminar, library resources introduction and campus tour, among other things.

The life in STL is full of joy, but the work pressure can also make it full of stress. Often, that transition into law school life is the hardest for first year students and STL works hard to smoothen this change. Peking University Shenzhen Graduate School will host its campus-wide orientation for all new students on 29th – 30th this month. It is a good chance to get to know more friends and start a new journey.

Legal English Boot Camp, August 1-8

STL’s Legal English Boot Camp is designed to provide incoming 1L students with extra English-language instruction and support before the commencement of classes.  This year’s Boot Camp is scheduled for Thursday, August 1 through Thursday, August 8.  Dr. Lindsey Kurtz, Director of STL’s Center for Academic Legal English, will oversee the Boot Camp.  The curriculum will include reading, writing and vocabulary exercises in the context of an American J.D. curriculum.
