China Summer Program in Beijing
Take your Legal Studies Abroad
The Summer Program at the University of International Business and Economics Law School (UIBE) is jointly sponsored by Brooklyn Law School and Loyola Law School of Los Angeles. UIBE’s concentration on a business and commercial law curriculum provides an ideal setting for the program’s international and comparative law focus.
The two-week program will run from May 24 - June 6, 2015 and will offer the following courses:
- Comparative Constitutional Law: China, the U.S., and Beyond (2 credits)
- Introduction to International Intellectual Property Law (1 credit)
International and Comparative Law Program
This year the China summer program will focus on comparative constitutional law and intellectual property. Students will have the opportunity to study at one of the most respected law schools in China, the University of International Business and Economics Law School (UIBE). Courses are taught by faculty from Loyola Law School and Brooklyn Law School, with lectures by prominent Chinese legal scholars and lawyers.
Students will study and live in Beijing, one of the world’s oldest cities and the capital of the People’s Republic of China, the world’s fastest growing economy. Beijing is the home of major government offices, including the Supreme People’s Court of China. Many of China’s largest state-owned and privately-held companies, as well as international corporations and law firms, have their headquarters in the city. Beijing is the epicenter of Chinese politics, economics, culture, and education. It is a bustling city with a thriving population of approximately 20 million people.
The setting provides an excellent backdrop for the study of international and comparative business law. It also provides an opportunity for students to witness a legal system and a society that are in the process of re-creating themselves. Guest lectures by distinguished Chinese scholars and practitioners and visits to Chinese legal institutions enrich the China Program experience.
Students will have the opportunity to explore China’s ancient history—the Forbidden City, Great Wall, and other important attractions that exist alongside modern developments such as the iconic Olympic Stadium and the spectacular National Centre for the Performing Arts. Students may choose to spend the weekend between classes visiting other cities, such as Xian or Shanghai.
