The Master of European and International Law (MEIL) is a one-year program for international students offered at the China-EU School of Law in Beijing. Students learn about various European and international areas of law as well as peculiarities of the Chinese legal system. The entire program, involving economic, cultural and historical aspects, is interdisciplinary. Subject areas include law and politics in the EU, European corporate law and an introduction to Chinese law.
In Europe, there is an increasing demand for legal experts who understand not only European and international but Chinese law, as well. This program enables students to specialize in Chinese private and public law.
The teaching staff is a so-called "flying faculty," with professors hailing from twelve European partner universities. In addition to four mandatory modules taught in English, students can elect a module at a later point in the program, thereby establishing a focus. Students write a master's thesis at the end of the second semester. Students can also attend Chinese language courses.
