Tsinghua University, Beijing, China

  Calvin Koo, Katherine Polak, Kathryn Potalivo and William Blonigan, Tsinghua University, China

Located in China's capital city, Tsinghua Law School has long been regarded as one of the top law faculties in the country. as well as one of the top 50 universities in the world, according to Times Higher Education rankings. BU Law students participate in a single (fall) semester of Tsinghua's LL.M. in Chinese Law Program - an English language program focusing exclusively on Chinese law and China's legal system - and the first of its kind in mainland China. The program has a truly international feel, however, as all students are from foreign countries (not just the U.S.), and many of the program's faculty, including Tsinghua's full-time faculty, adjuncts and local practitioners, have studied outside of China, giving the program an international perspective.

After earning their J.D. degree from BU Law, students can return to Tsinghua to earn an LL.M. in Chinese Law.
