Development Characteristics

The College of Law was established in 2002 in response to the demand for the advancement of legal education in southern Taiwan. The College provides unparalleled opportunities to study law and related disciplines through research, teaching, academic exchange, and collaboration across the University and so on.
The Department of Law provides traditional legal education to undergraduates. Our core legal courses impart a strong foundation to our students and give them enough ability to incorporate new information and legal practices. Therefore, teaching and researching of traditional legal education is the foundation for the long-term development of College.
The Department of Government and Law train students for success in the legal profession and public service. The so-called “political men” not only means the graduates of political science departments but individuals dedicated to the political and public services. The so-called “legal men” refers to individuals dedicated to the legal profession or the people who interest in legal affairs. It’s also meaningful to promote national constitutional.
The Department of Economic and Financial Law nurture students for success in law practice with emphasis on economic, financial and related disciplines. Through its faculty, teachers, students, and alumni, the Department can continue contribute to Taiwan’s economic development and complex legal and social challenges.

Present Situation

The College itself was established in July 2002 and was one of the few universities with complete legal education system in southern Taiwan. In order to provide advanced legal education and raise the atmosphere of research, a Master’s degree program was established by the Department of Law and the Department of Government and Law in 2002 and 2004, respectively. Additionally, a two-year degree program for working people was established by the Department of Law and the Department of Government and Law in 2001; a Master’s degree program for working people was also established by the Department of Law in 2003.
