Dates, Tuition and Housing Information

The 2014 program runs from May 26 to June 28, 2014. Classes are scheduled from morning to early afternoon. There are four breaks (a two-day break, a three-day break, a four day break, and another three day break). The class days and breaks are shown on the class schedule.

Classes are conducted on the campus of Beihang University in Beijing, a preeminent Chinese institution of higher education with modern instructional venues, libraries and technology. Students have access to many of the facilities on campus for study and recreation. Students participate in field trips to a law firm, a government agency and an arbitration office.

Living accommodations are available on campus in a hotel owned and operated by Beihang University. The hotel features simple Western-style guest rooms. Each room comes with a private bath, television and free Internet access. The rate for a two-bed room is approximately $700 per person for 34 days (check in May 25 and check out June 28). Breakfast is included. Additional information on housing accommodations.

Tuition for the summer program is the same as St. Mary’s University School of Law tuition for law classes at the home campus in Texas. The rate is approximately $1,038 per credit hour. Students purchase their own books and must obtain a Chinese visa. This worksheet explains how a student can minimize the costs of studying law in China.
