LLM in China

Since I found out that CESL is not the best choice for an LLM I am looking for alternatives. Can someone recommend a well developed and structured program in China that is taught in English?

Hello Chineau!

I'm a current LL.M. candidate for this program and I can honestly tell you that this is the best LL.M. program in China.

Before I came to STL I did a lot of research about LL.M. programs and at first I was really disappointed because they all were about Chinese Law. STL's LL.M. is an international program that combines not only courses from a transnational perspective such as Transnational Energy Law and Policy and Corporate Governance from a Global Perspective but also they give students the chance to learn about China's legal systems and traditions. Furthermore, you can enhance your experience by learning Mandarin, which at the long term will be an incredible asset if you want to work in China.

If you are really interested in pursuing a complete international LL.M. in China, STL is the place. We have an excellent set of full time faculty and visiting professors that are devoted to their courses and are always willing to help you during their office hours.

I hope my comments give you a more clear idea of what STL and our LL.M. program is about.

Hello Chineau!

I'm really a student at STL! I started on August and I've been in STL for about two months now. I'm really enthusiastic about STL and its program because in my opinion it's the best international LL.M. in China. I'm from Panama and I didn't want to get an LL.M. in Chinese Law because I really think it wouldn't be helpful, at least for me. Many of China's top universities only offer LL.Ms taught in English oriented to Chinese Law and some in IP, like Tsingua. So, I was really relieved to find STL.

I chose STL because of its campus in Shenzhen (is a city far less crowded and contaminated than Beijing), you will still get a diploma from Peking University (see QS world ranking 2015- PKU ranks #18) and you get a LL.M taught in English by chinese and foreign professors.

Hello AleTapia, many thanks for your reply. I value your comment. Did you speak any Mandarin upon your arrival or how do you get around Shenzhen? I suppose English for communication is not sufficient, solely for your LLM studies or am I wrong?

No, I didn't speak any Mandarin before coming to Shenzhen. In fact it's my first time in Asia. I'm currently taking Mandarin courses offered by STL and with that I get around. On campus almost everyone speaks in English, but if you go to the city you will need some basic Mandarin to survive.

English is sufficient for the LLM courses and living in campus, but if you want to go out campus and travel around China, Mandarin is indispensable.

I hope this information is useful!
