Wuhan University School of Law is the law school of Wuhan University in Wuhan, China.[1] It was established in 1909 as the Wuchang University of Law. When the nationalist government founded Wuchang Zhongshan University in 1926, it absorbed Wuchang University of Law and made it the law department, which subsequently changed name to National Wuhan University in 1928.[2][3] The School of Law was oft-referred as one of the "Four Famous Law Schools" in China,[4][5] and one of the "four law departments and five law colleges," representing the highest level of legal education and research in China.[6] According to a 2009 evaluation conducted by Chinese Ministry of Education, Wuhan Law was ranked the 3rd among the law schools in China, tied with Peking University.[7] Both its undergraduate and graduate programs are ranked the third in China by Wu Shulian.[8][9]
