Arizona Law Expands Global Partnerships

The College of Law is stepping up its outreach to universities in several countries, including China, in its ongoing efforts to globalize the educational experience of Arizona Law students and expand international career prospects for graduates. Brent White, Professor of Law and Associate Dean for Programs and Global Initiatives at Arizona Law, has just returned from China, where he met with administrators at five major law schools to establish dual-degree programs that will allow Chinese students to obtain both their home country law degree (an LLB) and a JD from Arizona Law in only five years.

In addition, UA law students will be able to spend their second or third year of law school studying at either Tsinghua University or Fudan University law school in China. Students would still graduate from the UA in three years, but with both a J.D. from the UA and an LLM in Chinese Law from Tsinghua Law School, or an LLM in Chinese Business Law from Fudan Law School.
