KoGuan Law School of Shanghai Jiao Tong University

The KoGuan Law School of Shanghai Jiao Tong University is located in the university’s Xuhui campus in the heart of cosmopolitan Shanghai.  The school offers both undergraduate and postgraduate instruction.  Graduate students at the Law School have the opportunity to make connections with Shanghai’s many businesses and law firms through its extensive internship placement program.  The Law School has a strong international focus and has developed partnerships with many law schools throughout the world, including Iowa. Many faculty members at the Law School have advanced degrees from distinguished American and European universities.  The primary language of instruction at the Law School is Chinese, but the school offers approximately 25 courses, including commercial and economic law courses and international and comparative law courses in English designed for exchange students and students in the Law School’s English-language International Programs—an SJD Program, an LLM Program in Chinese Law, and a Summer Program in Chinese Law. 

Applications for a fall start are due to Iowa in March and to SJTU by May, and for a spring start are due to Iowa in September and SJTU by November.

Professor Stella Elias is the faculty advisor for this program.
