Months of entry
You will receive advanced legal training in your chosen subjects, similar to that of a standard LLM programme in the Law School, and of a level that is required for further study in the Law. You will also achieve competence (in reading, writing and oral work) in Modern Standard Chinese (Mandarin) and a solid foundation in understanding contemporary Chinese society, culture and politics.
The programme offers a unique and exciting opportunity for you to develop further your Chinese language skills through an Approved Residence Abroad where you will live and work in China as part of the programme.
Once on the programme it will be possible for students to study more specialised areas of law and, where appropriate, graduate with a named LLM degree in one of the following areas:
- Commercial Law & Chinese
- Intellectual Property Law & Chinese
- International Law & Chinese
