It is a law school of Zhejiang University now located in the Zhijiang Campus, Zhejiang University, close to the Liuhe Pagoda and the Qiantang River.[1]

Brief history[edit]

It was reorganized in 2007, at the 110th anniversary of Zhejiang University. Before, it was the Zhejiang University's law school, which was first founded in 1945.

In 1952, due to the Adjustment of University Colleges & Departments (中國高校院係調整/中国高校院系调整), Zhejiang University was dissociated and only kept its engineering (major) and a few science (minor) parts. Its humanities and major science parts were separated from the university and further formed the new Hangzhou University, so the law school was moved into the newly established Hangzhou University, became its Department of Law.

In 1995, the Department of Law, Hangzhou University was enlarged and developed into the Law School, Hangzhou University. 1998, the Hangzhou University re-merged into the Zhejiang University, so that Zhejiang University re-obtained its law school.[2]
