QLD TO ATTRACT MORE CHINESE LAW STUDENTS

QLD TO ATTRACT MORE CHINESE LAW STUDENTS

MORE Chinese students are set to undertake postgraduate law programs in Queensland following the partnership of Bond University and one of China's specialist economics and law institutions.

The five year agreement with Zhongnan University of Economics and Law (ZUEL), located in China's Wuhan Province, has officially been signed.

Under the partnership agreement, Bond academics will travel each year to ZUEL to deliver law subjects in English, allowing Chinese students who complete those subjects to articulate into Bond's Master of Laws and Juris Doctor programs.

The agreement also facilitates collaborative research partnerships between the two universities.

Bond University Acting Executive Dean of Law, Professor Nick James, says the agreement would make Bond a top choice for Chinese students wanting to undertake postgraduate law programs abroad.

"It is a real coup to be aligned with such a well-respected university, considered one of China's leading institutions.  The Zhongnan law school is Asia's largest and a Top 10 law school in China," says James.

"As ZUEL's first Australian institutional partner in law, and one of only three universities in the world with similar arrangements with ZUEL, the agreement effectively puts Bond at the forefront for Chinese law students looking to complete postgraduate study in Australia.

"Law firms all over the world are increasingly looking for graduates who can demonstrate transnational and global expertise and experience, so this initiative is an important one."

James says the partnership was particularly timely, given the increasing importance of relations between Australia and China and the recent growth in Chinese investment in Australia, particularly in Queensland.
