The Washington University in St. Louis School of Law is entering the second year of its partnership with the Fudan University Law School in China. The program allows a cohort of students from Fudan to study at the School of Law.
Through the partnership, students in Fudan University’s Juris Master program study for one year at Fudan University, then pursue a Master of Laws (LLM) for one year at Washington University before returning to Fudan to complete their degree requirements. Additionally, faculty from both universities are invited to participate in visiting scholars and professors programs through ongoing exchanges.
The new agreement builds upon Fudan University’s significant role with Washington University’s McDonnell International Scholars Academy. Founded in 2005 and now with 34 partners from around the world, the McDonnell Academy organizes international symposia on global issues such as public health and population aging. It also recruits an annual cohort of about 15 scholars to study and prepare to be global leaders.
