Handong International Law School (HILS)
U.S. and International Law (3-year course) Spirit of Handong International Law School
Joined together though worship and focused on how law relates to Jesus Christ, one hundred and fifty graduate law students from twenty different countries study law at HILS, following a U.S. law school curriculum. With the largest full-time, U.S. trained law faculty in Asia, HILS professors teach, disciple and serve these students in a common effort to establish a new kind of international lawyer, trained for Christian service. Most graduates have taken US bar examinations before returning to their home countries to work in legal missions, law firms, churches, corporations, NGOs, international organizations and governments. Wherever these lawyers practice - whether in the context of business, human rights, international trade or environmental law - they are encouraged to distinguish their work by following Jesus Christ.
