Li Ruohan

Abstract—In the past 70 years since the founding of New China, its legal education has developed from restoration at the beginning to continuous prosperity right now, a modern legal education system with relatively large-scale, reasonable structure and high quality characteristics has been preliminarily improved. Due to historical and institutional reasons, there are also many practical problems on China’s higher legal education mode, such as the lack of humanistic spirit, the disconnection between theoretical education and legal profession, and the anomie of university management. Its current educational concept, curriculum and teaching content of legal education can not meet requirements of social politics and economic development. Therefore, it is necessary to further adjust and improve the education mode, education level and education idea of our higher legal education to constantly improve its education quality.

Index Terms—Higher legal education, vocational education, law talents training, education reform.
