Academic Specialties and Objectives

1.Professional legal executive training

 In response to the diversified development of society and the need for legal professionals, training is no longer limited to traditional legal education. The increasing international interaction and the diversity of social development have not only improved the legal system and the country's economic development, but nowadays, people need more than just law officers and lawyers; they also need all sorts of legal services. The Department of Law provides various professional courses, including Business Law, Public Law, Criminal Law, Anglo-American Law, International Law, Financial Law, Fundamental Law, and other related topics. The courses emphasize both Civil Law and Anglo-American Law, providing students with a dynamic learning environment and an abundant education to enhance their competitiveness.

2. Education that empathizes both theory and practice

 Unlike traditional legal education, which overly emphasizes theory rather than lawyering skills, the Department of Law encourages heuristic education and provides even training on both knowledge and application. The case study method is applied in Anglo-American Law courses, building a solid foundation from the beginning of students' study and strengthening their abilities of critical thinking, logical reasoning, and problem-solving skills. Furthermore, to promote legal knowledge and the spirit of serving others, Legal-aid Services and Promoting Law-related Education Team are available for students to participate. Additionally, by taking part in various moot court and debate competitions, students can put what they have learned in class into practice and strengthen their integrating skills when facing all kinds of challenges.

3.Strengthening advanced legal education

 To neutralize the effect of exam-oriented education on higher legal education, the Department of Law has always been diligent in course design. With innovative curriculum design and solid legal training, we expect students to have the skill to integrate different fields of knowledge. Moreover, to make the best of our convenient city campus location, we also provide various master’s programs and legal courses, which help maintain our education quality and cultivate cross-disciplinary legal professionals.

4.Enhancing the global perspective

 Ever since the foundation of Soochow University, the Department of Law has always valued the cultivation of international legal professionals beyond all things; therefore, we are famous for our Anglo-American Law focused courses which help to cultivate students' global perspective and the training of legal professionals on Anglo-American and International Law. Furthermore, other innovative Financial and International Law courses are often updated to meet the academic development of Taiwan and the world. Lately, the Department has signed various agreements on academic cooperation with multiple famous Law schools from Asia, the United States, Japan, and Germany. This international academic cooperation will improve multicultural interaction and be very helpful for cultivating multinational legal professionals.

5.Cultivating legal professionals with the human solicitude

 The goal of legal education is to cultivate professionals to serve our society. We expect our students to have the courage to stand up for justice and to believe in caring and contributing. The compulsory course on Legal Ethics (available since 1991), International Human Rights Law, and Theories of Human Rights are available for students. The Legal-aid Services, founded in 1972, and the Promoting Law-related Education Team, founded in 1991, are designed to cultivate a full-grown character with essential professional ethics and a warm heart to contribute.
