The National Law Journal recently wrote about a new Chinese law school applying for ABA accreditation. http://www.law.com/jsp/article.jsp?id=1202421959463. The Peking University of Transnational Law (Shenzhen campus) will offer a three year course of study mainly in American law taught in English. Additional information about the school, in English and Chinese, is available at: http://www.stl.szpku.edu.cn/info/
Asia is home to other experiments in global legal education : Handong Global University International Law School (Korea) http://lawschool.handong.edu/english/default.asp and O.P. Jindal Global University Law School (Haryana, India) http://www.jgls.org/ It appears these schools will teach local students, but employ faculty and staff from various countries. The promotional literature for the Jindal Law School also states that they plan to raise $12 million for the library. Here’s hoping that these transnational law schools presage an era of global law library collaborations.
