Credit Requirement


    The LL.M. Program requires a minimum of 24 credits of course studies and a dissertation associated with one course. To earn the degree, a student must satisfactorily complete approximately ten courses (depending on the credit hours assigned to a particular course) and a research paper relating to one of the courses attended by the student.

    As permitted under the American Bar Association accreditation regulations, Juris Doctor students from the US may also choose to take one semester or an entire year of courses at Tsinghua and request permission from their home law schools to apply the credits toward their Juris Doctor degree. Students coming for only one semester can attend the fall semester or the spring semester, and get a certificate. Students who take one semester for the first time at Tsinghua may come again to complete another semester within two years in order to get the degree.
