English-language LLM programs in China

Peking University's Law School has just started an English-language LL.M. program in Chinese law. Applications for the 2006-07 academic year are due on May 29th. For more information, click here.

To the best of my knowledge, this is the second English-language LL.M. in Chinese law offered directly by a Chinese law school. The first is at Tsinghua University's Faculty of Law; for more information, click here.

My post was about English-language LLM programs offered by Chinese (mainland) law schools. I did not of course mean to suggest that Hong Kong law schools did not offer LLM programs in English. The websites in question do not list any such programs other than those offered by Tsinghua and Peking Univ. The ones offered by East China Institute of Politics and Law and by Jinan University require Chinese language ability, according to their web sites.

I was wondering what your personal opinion on gaining a LLM degree from Tsinghua or Peking University was? Do you think it is worth it (in terms of money, time and payoff?) I feel like it is almost a money grabbing scheme because all of a sudden, many law schools are jumping aboard...but at the same time, there may be merit to getting a LLM in Chinese law...

China University of Political Science and Law have just launched an LLM program in English aimed solely at international native-English students.

At the same time, students can study Chinese and get work experience in law firms in Beijing and other cities in China.
