The Peking University Transnational Law Review (“Law Review”) is a non-profit organization that produces a law journal focused on publishing articles and notes on Chinese, U.S., comparative and international law issues. one of the only two Chinese student-run law reviews published in English. Founded in 2011, the Law Review is one of the only two student-run law reviews published in English in China. It is operated independently by students of Peking University School of Transnational Law (“STL”) in Shenzhen, China.

The Law Review seeks to become a globally well-known law review and an important tool for those who are researching and working on Chinese, U.S., comparative and international law issues. It serves this goal through the publication of one print volume each year with two separate issues—published in summer and winter. The Law Review’s editors select, edit, and publish scholar’s papers, book reviews, speech serials, case notes and translate authorized works on the cutting edge of legal issues.

Currently, we have published seven issues. These issues are accessible through our website and a number of databases such as HeinOnline, Lexis China, and Chinalawinfo. The hard copies of the Law Review are placed at the UNCITRAL Law Library (Vienna), Lillian Goldman Law Library of Yale Law School (New Haven), WilmerHale LLP (London), Kirkland & Ellis LLP (Shanghai), Kobre& Kim LLP (Hong Kong), K&L Gates LLP (Beijing), King & Wood Mallesons, JunHe LLP and Fangda Partners. In the near future, the Law Review will also be available and accessible on Westlaw, LexisNexis, CNKI (the most popular academic database in China) and other databases.

Articles after 2019 have been published on STL Law Review Blog.
