China LLM

Zot:

I think that the human rights issue you encountered may be a symptom of Qinghua. Qinghua is much more conservative than BeiDa (for better or worse, I'm not making a judgment) but from what I gather, you would have a better chance of having your thesis approved on a human rights issue at BeiDa. In fact, BeiDa offers a LLM in Human Rights to its Chinese students (which is probably censured to some degree as well but not to the same extent as Qinghua).

well i attended that human rights program and did my thesis in human rights law. don't worry, the university does not interfeer much with law school's teaching.

hey guys, as a Chinese I'm glad to see so many foreign talents are interested in working in China. but I'm also quite suprised: why China? you may all have heard of the air pollution (at least in Beijing), the noize, the terrible traffic... and inspite of all these, you're interested in beijing. Why? Well I'm a Beijinger, graduated from Beida law school and work in Beijing with a local law firm. I love this city because it's my hometown, but I've heard many foreign friends complaining to me of those problems...

There is much about the PRC that is heart breaking. There is so much good potential and SO MANY wonderful people in China. I have much hope for the wonderful place. But there is a lot of sadness and suffering there as well. Here is not the place to discuss the problems.

However, there are many wonderful places in this world. I have a long term interest in China because that is where my wife's family lives.

Hey there Zogicogrillo. How are you doing old friend? Long time no post! I hope all is well in the Great Northwest! I'm relocating to the cold Northeast/Big Apple this fall. Perhaps we can finally meet up in the PRC one of these days!

Are the lessons compulsory? When are there exams and when vacation? Is it a lot of work? Where can I find accomodation? They don(t help me very much...

Thank you!

I am strongly considering applying for this program. Actually to be more accurate I dearly want to apply to the BeiDa LLM in Chinese Law program, however I would like some information about post-qualification. I am currently studying an LLB in my home country the UK. I will graduate May 2012 and I would very much like to do this afterwards. My goal is to work for an international firm in China. I would like to know if this is possible based on a UK LLB + an LLM in Chinese law. (I have basic Putonghua skills - both written and oral - having learned it during an exchange year at HKU and will continue to improve them at home.)
Will the fact that I am not qualified in my home jurisdiction be a barrier in this regard? If possible I would like to go LLB --> LLM-->Work in China and then possibly back to the UK (at which point I would have to qualify as a solicitor.)
I understand that if I qualify first I would be a foreign qualified lawyer with an LLM, and employment as a foreign lawyer in many jurisdictions under these circumstances would not be unusual, Im just wondering if in China I could do so with just an LLB and LLM but without being admitted in another jurisdiction.

Thanks,

Calum

PS. I also posted this in the BeiDa specific thread as I wasn't sure where it should go. Moderators feel free to delete/move with impunity.

Anyone else going? I received my acceptance from Tsinghua and Beida. I have chosen to go to Beida for Fall 2011 after much consideration.
