      Profile

      The School of Law aims at providing legal education with an emphasis on finance and business. Hence, unlike traditional legal education, the core curriculum focuses on basic legal courses as well as basic course in business school such as accounting and economics. Having finished their basic training both in law and business courses, students then are encouraged to develop their specialty in financial law, law and technology, taxation or international commerce law. Also, in line with Chung Yuan Christian University’s emphasis on holistic education, the School of Law also lists Legal Ethics as a compulsory course, hoping to cultivate legal professionals with ethical practices. To help prepare its students for future practices, the School of Law provides a wide selection of advance courses that are theoretical-oriented as well as practice-oriented. The School of Law also encourages students to serve in its Legal Aid Program, so that students can test their training and help people in real life. Since its establishment, its Legal Aid Program has been awarded grants from the Ministry of Education for their service in places such as the Taiwan Taoyuan District Court, and Taoyuan County Government’s consumer protection service.
