In October 2017, Peking University Law School established the first "International Day", including college exhibitions and consulting seminars, special lectures, face-to-face meetings with admissions supervisors. In October 2018, the activities were upgraded to "International Week", including distinguished Global Faculty Lecture series, exhibition and consulting seminars of well-known law firms, overseas study   and Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Exchange, and Education Exhibition and Global Legal Education Forum.
