Study at the South West University of Political Science & Law (SWUPL) in Chongqing, China after graduation.
Drake Law School’s Post-Graduate Study in China program enables Drake Law graduates to study as part of International Law Fellowships or teach as a foreign expert teacher at South West University of Political Science & Law (SWUPL) in Chongqing, China.
The fellowship and teacher positions are ideal for those graduates whose post-graduate employment is uncertain, or for those whose employer is willing to defer a the graduate's start day because they can see the value to such an experience.
Each of the prior fellows took the Iowa Bar Exam in July and left for China in mid-August, studying at SWUPL during the fall semester and traveling around China.
Chongqing is the fastest growing city in China with a population of nearly 29 million, and it is booming even by China’s growth standards. Chongqing is one of four federal municipalities in China, so its economy gets a further boost from the infusion of national government funding.
By all accounts business and trade between China and Iowa is likely to expand significantly as a byproduct of Xi Jinping’s Presidency and his longstanding friendship with former Governor Branstad, now United States Ambassador to China, and others from the state.
Drake has had a long-standing relationship with SWUPL. Most recently, 30 SWUPAL students studied at Drake Law School for one month in March 2019.
