Background of STL.
In 2007, the State Council of The People’s Republic of China authorized Peking University, one of the world’s great research universities, to undertake a bold and forward-looking experiment in legal education: the creation of a post-graduate law school offering both an American-style Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree and a Chinese Juris Master (J.M.) degree. The next year, STL welcomed its first entering class on Peking University’s stunning new graduate campus in Shenzhen.
Today, the verdict on STL’s cutting-edge program is clear: STL graduates are highly sought after for positions with leading multinational firms and corporations, leading Chinese law firms and corporations, major SOEs, and leading international NGOs. Leading students from around the world compete for admission, and STL’s multinational faculty includes world-renowned scholars from China, the U.S., the E.U., and elsewhere.
STL’s signature J.D./J.M. dual degree program emphasizes lawyering skills and knowledge for the 21st century with a focus on transnational law and practice, cross-cultural competence, and the professional responsibilities of lawyers in these contexts.
