Law Schools

There are some differences in the legal education of Taiwan.  First, law is primarily studied as an undergraduate program resulting in a Bachelor of Law (B.L.).  It is said that this degree is equivalent to the 'first' professional degree in law (J.D. or LL.B.).  This is the reason why most Taiwan Universities have departments of law rather than schools of law.  

Second, students receive academic rather than practical training.  Practical training is arranged only after the individual passes the lawyer, judge or prosecutor exams.

At the graduate level, there is only the LL.M. or Ph.D. offered in the area of law.  The LL.M. is not seen as a short term training program in some specific area of legal practice and of course the Ph.D. is the highest level degree offered.

Many places, like NTU have begun to offer a Master's program in interdisciplinary legal studies.  Some say that this is a J.D. degree in its early stages.



A list(quite old and probably outdated) of law schools that offer degrees to foreigners can be found here.
A list of all law schools can be found on my website here.
