LLM in Tsinghua


jmsmt
Has anyone applied to an LLM in Tsinghua (not the program associated with Temple) and does anyone have any idea how many people they are accepting, and when applicants will know whether they are accepted or not?

Also, how reputable is the program exactly, and would taking an LLM in China be more rewarding than taking one in Hong Kong? Do firms in China and Hong Kong regard the LLM from Tsinghua or let's say HKU highly?

Thanks!

Basically in mainland China Tsinghua and Beijing U (Peking U) inspire awe amongst everyone and graduates are seen as being elite ; the best of the best. When it comes to foreigners though its a different story evidenced by the number of foreign language students enrolled in China's top universities (Tsinghua, Beijing U, Nanjing U, Fudan, Jiao Tong etc.) ; its very easy for a foreigner to get into a good Chinese university for a language course but I don't think that Chinese people generally realise this. If you're ever planning on doing business in China I'd say the Tsinghua degree would really impress people. The campus is great too ; nice architecture, big open spaces, nice area of Beijing and the law school is located right in the heart of the campus (though they wouldn't let me inside the building to have a look). Any Hong Kong university is very highly regarded in the mainland (though of course some more than the others). As for taking an LLM in Beijing being more rewarding it all depends on what you want out of it. Its going to be easier to learn Mandarin in Beijing, Beijing is full of history and culture and the cost of living is a lot lower but the trade offs are the pollution, the censorship, the lower standard of living and less of an international feel also the transportation isn't that good but that's all changing as the Olympics approach. Living in Hong Kong would definitely be easier though more expensive. I seem to remember though that the Tsinghua programme was extraordinarily expensive for China - $20,000 or thereabouts, in contrast taking a Mandarin language course in Fudan or Jiao Tong universities, (ranked 4th and 6th in China) - 20 hours of lessons per week for a year is around $2000 so i'm not sure how they justify the huge cost.

I concur with Jack's statement. The Tsinghua LL.M. program is by far the best program and the best value for a foreign law practitioner. The courses are practical and the information is timely. But, I must also say the program IS demanding. The volume of coursework is high, but that is part and parcel of the learning experience. No pain. No gain. I assure you, you will gain alot from this program and it will be worth it. Good Luck!

Hi Guys,

I was accepted into the Spring 2008 class for the Tsinghua LLM program starting in Feb. I am from Australia and don't have much idea of how good the program is, its reputation (considered by local, HK and also Western standards), and what the courses are exactly like. Also I'm not sure how it stacks up to Beida's program. Can someone please provide some clarity around this? Would appreciate any and all of your insights as I am one confused person!

Cheers

I personally feel that Tsinghua is energetic, dynamic and pragmatic. I also strongly believe that Tsinghuas style of hard working, moving fast and adhering to practice would drive Tsinghua law school to sooner leave others lagging behind.

Tsinghua as the best in country also aims high at being the world class university by 2020. LLM offered by the law school is one of Tsinghuas showcases, apart from the MBA offered by the School of Economic and Management. This year Tsinghua encourages other 7 schools to offer degrees taught in English inspired by the models of LLM and MBA.

Hu Jintao did graduate from here,
and in the future,the next president Xi jinping did graduate from Tsinghua, so in a profile you can see Tsinghua is a good place to study.

Last Friday, Tsinghua law school held a successful lecture. The lecture's title is The International Criminal Court and Post Conflict Politics in Africa.The brief introduction :
the International Criminal Court is now approaching its fifth year of operation. In that time it has begun investigations in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Sudan and the Central African Republic. This talk considers the early operation of the International Criminal Court, with particular reference to the Court's impact on politics in Africa. The talk considers the Court's domestic impact in the Congo, the tension between peace and justice in Uganda, and the difficulties it is facing in Sudan. More broadly, the talk reflects on how international courts, such as the International Criminal Court can influence political outcomes, stability and governance in weak states, particularly those in the great lakes region of Africa.
Professor Burke-White holds a J.D. from Harvard Law School and a Ph.D. from Cambridge University in International Relations.

 The Master of Law Program (LL.M. Program) In Chinese Law at TsinghuaLawSchool, Beijing, China is the first formal legal educational program at the graduate level in China, which is designed and offered exclusively for foreign law students and legal professionals. It is believed that the best way of studying the legal system of a foreign country is to stay and live in the society while studying the rules and legal operations in that society. Therefore, this LL.M. Program does not only provide all courses and materials in English, but also the unique opportunity to get insight views of Chinese legal system and the society through close contacts with Chinese students, legal professionals and common people.

  As a country with a rich cultural heritage and the largest market in the world, China has become one of countries which receive largest foreign direct investment and one of leading import/export countries in the world. Its unique way of social transformation and successful economic development has been attracting the world attention and providing abundant resources for academic study. Through out the process of social transformation and economic development, the country has been endeavoring to establish a complex legal infrastructure by enacting laws, setting up legal institutes and building the rule of law in order to ensure the profound social reform and rapid economic boom sustainable and smooth. Legal system is not only a field of enormous changes but also the most important mechanism for facilitating the social transition.

  In the unprecedented process of globalization, Chinese law becomes a necessary knowledge and instrument for those who have business, cultural, academic and political encounters with China. To meet the increasing demand for understanding Chinese legal system, the Law School of TsinghuaUniversity launches this LL.M. Program in Chinese law for non-Chinese speaking law students and legal professionals in 2005. Its curriculum covers the major fields of Chinese law. The Program will offer you both unique insights in Chinese legal system and exciting experience in China.
