  • Summary: Zhejiang University Guanghua Law School grew out of Zhejiang University School of Law, which was established in 1945. Professor Li Haopei, a well-known international law scholar, was then appointed as the first dean of School of Law. During Professor Li's term, School of Law enjoyed a boom in its academic development. Professor Roscoe Pound, the former president of Harvard Law School, representative of Social Law School once taught here.
    Guanghua Law School has always adhered to the school motto, “take it as it is, but stand by goodness; understand laws, but seek justice always” and insisted on the approach to legal education, which aims at developing students' professional legal skills and the sense of social justice. Guanghua Law School also encourages both the staff and the students to enhance their academic research through exploring the fundamentals of law.
