The department of law of Tianjin University (Beiyang University at that time) was established in 1895. The department provided the earliest legal courses in China and therefore was the embryo of Chinese modern legal education. Our distinguished alumni include: ZHANG Tailei (one of the early leaders of the CCP), WANG Chonghui (highly esteemed jurist), WANG Zhengting, XU Mo, GUO Yunguan, YAN Shutang, WU Jingxiong, ZHAO Tianlin, etc. In 1920, the Beiyang government ordered Beiyang University to focus on engineering science and the department of law was merged into Peking University. There was not legal education and research at Tianjin University until 1994, when it began to provide courses for students whose major is economic law. In 1997, the department of law was re-established at Tianjin University and it became the faculty of law on 17 June 2015, which was an important moment in our history.
