STL's 10th Anniversary

China’s State Council authorized the creation of China’s first common law Juris Doctor curriculum in 2007. The following year, Peking University School of Transnational Law (STL) was founded and admitted its first students. By ten years’ development, STL becomes 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 four-year 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. Although STL is still young, with only seven graduating classes to date, it already has captured the attention of the world’s leading law firms, companies, government offices, NGOs and universities.

2018-2019 Academic Year marks STL’s 10th anniversary. We are celebrating the law school’s anniversary throughout the year with a series of lectures and events, which we will list here as they are scheduled.
