College of Law


    Development Characteristics
    The Department of Law emphasizes teaching and researching the traditional jurisprudential education, which has stood the test of time and has become the mainstream of legal study. The Department has created two new programs: the two-year bachelor program for working professionals in 2001, and the LLM program in 2002. In 2003, the master’s degree for legal practitioners was also established. These diversified programs provide excellent legal education in southern Taiwan and inspire people to join the legal profession.
    The Department offers a breathtaking array of courses, seminars, reading groups, which cover major areas of legal study and approach the law from a wide variety of perspectives. The Department aims to accomplish:
    ► A complete legal education and training for students.
    ► A comprehensive advanced legal study upon completion of an entrance examination for graduate students.
    ► An interdisciplinary approach integrating law and technology.

    The curriculum of the traditional jurisprudential education comprises civil law, commercial law, criminal law, law of civil procedure, law of criminal procedure, constitutional law, administrative law, law of administrative procedure, private international law, public international law, enforcement law, jurisprudence, history of law institution, and so forth. In addition to enhancing the teaching and research work, the Department has introduced legal issues of labor and employment, environmental protection, technology transfer, intellectual property rights, and international trade into the curriculum to accommodate the needs of social development. The Department also encourages interdisciplinary education in technology to improve our teaching quality.

    Postgraduate Opportunities
    Graduates may choose to pursue the advanced degree program in Taiwan or abroad. Other than being scholars in the future graduates can incorporate their legal knowledge with other academic disciplines to broaden their legal horizons. Graduates may take national examinations for legal professionals, such as judges, lawyers, and prosecutors. They can serve in the Government working in the judicial, judicial administration, or legislative fields. They can also join private corporations to provide legal and administrative services. It is with pleasure to report that 21 of our graduates passed the national examinations in 2006.
