In recent years, the education of international students at Peking University Law School has developed rapidly and become better. Using PKU’s inclusive spirit, PKULS not only creates valuable opportunities for outstanding students of law schools around the world to learn Chinese law, but also promotes the exchange of Chinese and foreign legal culture. At the same time, it also provides a large number of overseas exchange learning opportunities for PKULS students. It has greatly expanded the international perspective of students and improved the international development level of PKULS.
