CUPL has a total of 817 full time professors. Among them there are 524 law professors, representing the largest law faculty in China.
Among the faculty are leading draftsmen of current Chinese laws, 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. You may find that your critical comments, as did those of past years’ students, will “find their way into” one of China’s new legal codes!
