Global Legal Education and Awareness Project (G-LEAP)

In order to complement the existing exchange progammes and to produce law graduates who could deal with the challenges of working in a globalised environment, the School of Law launched the Global Legal Education and Awareness Project (G-LEAP) in October 2007. It is designed to promote excellence in legal education with a view to providing opportunities for our law students to have a global perspective in the study of law.  Under G-LEAP, the School signed an agreement with University College, Oxford*. Our students can study a credit-bearing law course for one month on an intensive basis during the summer term.

* to be confirmed

Application details of the G-LEAP will be announced to the students between January and March of each year.
The arrangement of G-LEAP is subject to confirmation.


The School’s LLM programme is a GLOBAL GATEWAY® Programme, which allows the students to participate in exchange and dual programmes under the cooperative agreements signed with a number of universities and institutions.
