院长致辞

We welcome your interest in the Master of Laws (LL.M.) Program at Peking University’s School of Transnational Law (“STL”) on PKU’s stunning graduate campus in Shenzhen, China.

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 a common law Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree and a Chinese Juris Master (J.M.) degree. The next year saw the establishment of Peking University’s School of Transnational Law (“STL”) on PKU’s new graduate campus in Shenzhen, China. STL also offers an LL.M. program for lawyers and students with a first degree in law. Our LL.M. is taught entirely in English by our multinational faculty of expert scholars and practitioners in Chinese and Western law and legal traditions.

STL’s LL.M. program is unique in China and in the world. It combines courses in transnational law, Western and Chinese law and legal traditions, complex transnational business transactions, and dispute resolution. Studying in Shenzhen, with its close proximity to Hong Kong, offers students the opportunity to study in the world’s fastest growing transnational economy and in the only metropolitan area where the world’s great legal systems–Chinese, civil law, common law, Communist traditions–are meeting and merging in ways likely to influence the next century of transborder conduct.

STL graduates are highly sought after for positions with leading domestic and multinational law firms, corporations, and NGOs as well as in government positions. LL.M. graduates will gain knowledge and skills that will equip them for transnational scholarship and practice and to be leaders in 21st century China and their home countries.

如果你已有能力,并准备好体验这一严格的学位教育,我们热忱地欢迎你成为这精英团队的一员。更重要的是,虽然我们对学业要求严格,但在这里你可以体验到教授平易近人,同学友爱互助的友好的学习氛围。
