Peking University Peking Uni… [+] versity (“PKU”) is one of the most distinguished research universities in the world. The Times of Higher Education has named PKU the number 1 university in China, the number 1 university in all BRICs nations, the number 4 university in all of Asia, and the 46th most academically renowned university in the world.

The J.M. curriculum provides core Chinese law courses and is taught largely in Chinese. Most Chinese students enroll in STL’s dual degree J.D./J.M. program; most international students enroll in STL’s three-year J.D. program. Both curriculums emphasize lawyering skills and knowledge for the 21st century: (i) transnational law and practice, (ii) cross-cultural competence, and (iii) the professional responsibilities of lawyers in these contexts. No law school anywhere better equips graduates for private sector, public sector, or public interest legal work in China, the United States, the United Kingdom, or British Commonwealth nations.

Peking University School of Transnational Law (STL) offers a Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree, pursuant to a three-year full-time program based on a J.D. curriculum comparable to that offered in United States. The language of instruction is English. The program also includes an elective fourth year course, devoted to a survey of Chinese law, with instruction in Mandarin Chinese. Courses in Chinese law are mainly open to students from Mainland China or whose first language is Chinese. Both curriculums emphasize lawyering skills and knowledge for the 21st century: (i) transnational law and practice, (ii) cross-cultural competence, and (iii) the professional responsibilities of lawyers in these contexts. No law school anywhere better equips graduates for private sector, public sector, or public interest legal work in China, the United States, the United Kingdom, or British Commonwealth nations.

Major luxury groups such as LVMH, PPR and companies like Hermès, Cartier and Baccarat all have headquarters located in Paris. In recent history, Paris has turned almost every part of its economy into luxury through fashion, jewelry, beauty care as well as gastronomy, wine and travel.
