(Overseas Applicants)

As the first Sino-foreign law school initiated by both the China University of Political Science and Law (CUPL) and the University of Hamburg (UHH) in accordance with an agreement between P. R. China and European Union, the China-EU School of Law (CESL) is unique in more than one aspect. Chinese master's students graduated from 64 universities nationwide; international students come from 18 countries worldwide. CESL's academic staff is composed of full-time professors, adjunct professors, visiting professors and flying faculty from 13 European law schools. CESL's diversity is reflected in its autonomy, innovation and creativity.
