Social services

While doing a good job in scientific research and talent training, the school also gives full play to the advantages offered by its discipline, i.e. serving the rule of law, economic and social development in the Pearl River delta region, and providing strong talent and intellectual support for the establishment and strengthening of regional rule of law. All these down-to-earth practices are highly appreciated by members of society and have gained results in due course.


The school has carried out various social services

Looking forward, School of Law will continue to blaze new ground, forge ahead and promote reform and innovation at a higher level. Since 30 years are merely periodical success, it should strive harder to open up new prospects for the development of various undertakings of the school and work to write a brighter chapter.
