Welcome to CUPL


The English LLM, PhD, Summer and Semester Law Program at China University of Political Science and Law (CUPL) in Beijing are programs open exclusively to international students focusing on China’s rapidly developing domestic and international law.

Established in 1952, CUPL, is known as a leading law school in China. CUPL has played, and continues to play, a key part in the formation of China’s legal system: from the drafting of the 1954 Constitution of the People’s republic of China, to the promulgation of the Anti-Secession Law and the enactment and implementation of almost every major law of the Republic.

Spread over two campuses (an undergraduate campus in Changping and the postgraduate campus in Beijing city) the University has a total of 817 full time professors. Among them there are 524 law professors, representing the largest law faculty in the world.

Among the faculty are top Chinese scholars who were trained in China and the West, government officials, and practitioners in leading Beijing law firms.

Many of the Chinese faculty are instrumental in drafting the laws required for the newly emerging market economy. International students may find that their critical comments, as did those of past years’ students, “find their way into” China’s legal codes.

International students can also study Mandarin Chinese and have the opportunity to take work experience in Beijing and other cities in China.




All the Professors were great. I’ve had a great time in Beijing and I thank CUPL and its staff for being so respectful to us.


Studying law in China is an excellent opportunity and I can’t think of any better place to do it than CUPL. CUPL has an excellent reputation in the legal world


The curriculum was skilfully devised to allow students to learn a significant amount of detail in a relatively short period of time. The courses were taught by Chinese doctors and professors who seemed to have been very qualified in the area of law in which they specialised.
