The courses are mainly taught by Chinese and foreign teachers of Peking University School of Law, Besides, we will invite experts from UN and other international organizations as well as well-known scholars from home and abroad to give the students special lectures irregularly.
All courses are free of tuition and we provide needed Chinese and English teaching materials and reference books free of charge. The project assists the students to find jobs or internships in international organizations (non-governmental organizations included) and famous enterprises.
