Law was first taught at Zhejiang Gongshang University through the Zhejiang Administrative Institute of Politics and Law in 1979. Since then, the discipline has grown in significance and is now taught through a dedicated law school with expert staff. In the academic year 2016/2017, the School of Law educated 815 undergraduates and 344 postgraduates, including both Chinese students and international students. At undergraduate level, they have studied for the Bachelor of Laws (General), Bachelor of Laws (Intellectual Property Law) and Bachelor of Laws (International Law) degrees. For each of the ten years since 2007, the School of Law has been evaluated by the Ministry of Education as the top law school in Zhejiang Province. In 2017, the Network of Science and Education in China (www.nseac.com) listed the School of Law as being in the top 10% of the country’s law schools. The Ministry of Education’s 2017 evaluation ranked the School of Law as 45th in the national league. That confidence in the School of Law is reflected in the growing range of academic programs that the School of Law can now offer.
The School of Law also has an impressive external speaker series, which draws in both national and international experts. The School of Law attaches great importance to international research, partnerships and exchange programs. The School of Law has close connections with other leading Chinese law schools, and is aligned with several universities and institutions from the United States, Netherlands, Korea as well as other countries. Between 2006 and 2012, the School of Law was part of an experiential education project called “Legal Clinic and Advocacy Education”. The project was funded by USAID and led by University of the Pacific, Mc George School of Law and American University Washington College of Law. Twenty of the School of Law’s professors participated in this project and learned about the American legal experiential educational approach known as ‘Learning by Doing’, and other pedagogical methods.
