The School of Law at Chongqing University was founded in 1945, as one of the six schools (Arts, Sciences, Engineering, Commerce, Medicine, and Law) at that time. It has been led by Mr. Zhai Jinfu, Professor Luo Zhiru, and Professor Pan Dakui successively, with the contemporary renowned international jurist Mr. Wang Tieya having previously taught here. In 1952, as part of a national restructuring of higher education, the School of Law was separated from Chongqing University and merged with the law schools of sister institutions to establish Southwest University of Political Science and Law. In 1995, Chongqing University resumed undergraduate enrollment in law, initially under the administration of the former School of Business and Law, and established the Department of Law in 1998. The former Chongqing Jianzhu University began enrolling undergraduate law students in 1995 and undergraduate law students in 1996. The Social Sciences Department was established in 1992, offering law-related courses to the entire university. In 2000, the three schools merged to form a new Department of Law, which was reinstated as the School of Law at Chongqing University in 2002. The school has a complete disciplinary and training system, offering undergraduate programs in law and intellectual property, with master’s and doctoral degree programs in law (covering 10 sub-disciplines) and professional master’s degree programs in law. It also hosts a post-doctoral research station in law. Over the past twenty years, the school has developed its own strengths and advantages in fields such as environmental and resource protection law, economic law, intellectual property law, jurisprudence, criminal law, civil and commercial law, constitutional law and administrative law, and international law. It has attracted a group of influential experts and scholars in the field of law, becoming a widely influential and reputable education and research base for law in the western region of China.

【Discipline Construction】

Since its establishment, the school’s disciplinary construction has achieved leapfrog development, recognized as a “significant phenomenon in legal education.” In 2000, it successfully applied for master’s degree programs in environmental and resource protection law and jurisprudence. In 2005, it established a doctoral degree program in environmental and resource protection law, followed by the establishment of a master’s degree program in law in 2006, a professional master’s degree program in law (JM) in 2007, and a post-doctoral research station in 2009. In 2011, it established a doctoral degree program in law. The undergraduate program in law is a national first-class specialty construction site, an education department-registered second-degree program, a Chongqing first-class undergraduate specialty construction project, a Chongqing higher education institution characteristic specialty, and a participant in the “Three Special Actions Plan” construction project. The discipline of law is a key discipline in Chongqing during the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan,” “Thirteenth Five-Year Plan,” and “Fourteenth Five-Year Plan,” and a key nurtured discipline at Chongqing University. The team in environmental and resource protection law has entered the “Environmental Resources Law Research Consortium” of the China Law Society (a national think tank), ranking 11th and 17th in the third round of discipline assessment by the Ministry of Education and entering the B+ category in the fourth round. |
