Online China LLM


snailcase

I am a program manager for the extension school of a major Asian university- I would like to know if there would be an interest in a hybrid/ online LLM (China law) program 6-8 subjects (2-3 core courses) + electives with a partner institution.
The program might be called Executive LLM in China Law- Executive (as it will be open to students with a non-legal background)
Students can take classes either online or offline or mix modes.

Would there be sufficient interest in an online China focused LLM
Any suggestions as to the courses?
Would students feel comfortable with an online LLM
Would students prefer an online LLM in BRIC law / Asian business law etc
Costs
All suggestions welcome.

Interesting that there are no posts. I found a similar quiet reaction when I asked about some distance learning china law programmes over the past few years and distance learning programmes in general.

Most of these posts seem to focus on UK/US schools which is not too surprising since the opportunities for work/academia seem higher. . NUS and the former NYU/NUS programme also seemed to attract more attention.

Wonder if anyone else has similar or other thoughts about this?

there is a lot of good information here in general.

Students are are very Anglo-american focused, and unfortunately even for Asian institutions/employers a degree from a top american/UK institution still carry a lot of clout.
Given the global shift to BRIC -countries, I thought an online LLM which introduce practitioners and non-practitioners to law in BRIC countries would be very useful, even if they retain local counsel.
