HKU and Peking University to Start Double Law Master Program

Students study in Chinese in Beijing and English in Hong Kong

Hong Kong University (HKU) Faculty of Law and Peking University's (PKU) Law School will begin a double Master degree in law during the academic year 2011-2012. The new arrangement will give LL.M. and Juris Master students at PKU the chance to spend a year studying at HKU; meanwhile LL.M. and MCL students from HKU may complete the Juris Master or LL.M. with PKU in one year, rather than the normal two years needed.

The program was designed in-part to "strengthen the interaction between common law and civil law which will in turn help develop the legal system in the Mainland."

Classes at PKU will be taught in Chinese; classes at HKU will be taught in English.

For more information, please see the program description here (PDF in Chinese).
