I'm a lawyer in the Dominican Republic, I'm currently doing a Corporate Business Law masters, after I finish that and then get through a business economics and accounting for lawyers masters I'm planning to go and do a final masters in the US... so welcome to the forum, I just thought it was good for you to know, that you are not the only non-american here.  :)

i am go glad you said welcome. that is important.^_^


In China, law education starts from undergraduate years, that means we could choose law major in our college.all courses are to be finished within 3-6years ( 4 is normal)then a bachlor's degree is granted. we have law juresprudence, constitution, legal history ,civil law in the first year. and other courses would be arranged within next 3 years. i think the most important difference between Chinese and American law education is teaching method. case law method is rarely used here(though a few law school is trying it),we use analysis method instead. that means, profs emphazise theoratical  and statutory matters more than specific cases.
