"Let youth bloom in the places where the Party and the people need it most" ---record of the offline ideological and political practice courses of Peking University Law School in 2020

"When the pen digs into the ground, and the scales walk down the court,

with a spoonful of rice wine and a local accent, the train roared five thousand miles through endless mountains.

The view of your back is on the road, melting into the morning sun."

On the way home after the ideological and political practice courses, Lou Jialu, a 2019 undergraduate of PKULS, recalled the hardships and transformation of the Selected Newly Appointed Cadres in the mountains, and wrote this "Tristich " affectionately. Not only in Guangxi, this summer, young law students from Peking University went to villages, towns, factories, workshops, governments, courts, and fields, reviewed the original hearts and beliefs of the Communist Party of China, touched the pulse and vitality of Rural Revitalization, witnessed the realization of the vision of Poverty Alleviation and Comprehensive Well-off… these all are imprinted in the hearts of the students.

The revolutionary culture and advanced socialist culture forged by the Communist Party of China in the process of leading the people in revolution, construction and reform are the profound force for carrying out ideological and political practice courses.

At the Yan'an revolutionary memorial hall and the former site of the high court of the Shaanxi-Gansu-Ningxia border region, the students enthusiastically reviewed the glorious journey of the Chinese Communists in their unremitting efforts to achieve great achievements. They carefully understood the arduous process that the revolutionary ancestors laid the foundation for the rule of law construction of new China, found the mystery of history and people's choice of Marxism and socialism, and strengthened the mission and responsibility of PKU youth in the new era.

On the one hand, the fruitful results of comprehensive deepening reform, the continuous improvement of grass-roots governance level and the increasing happiness of people's lives have encouraged students to further consolidate the foundation of their ideals and beliefs.

It is believed that ideological and political practice will plant the seeds of mission in the hearts of students. When the big trees grow up, they will take root in the motherland and write a colorful chapter of youth.
