China has undertaken ongoing legal reforms for four decades. Legal education, which provides the requisite training for prospective lawyers, judges, law academics and legal researchers, is an essential and integral component of legal reform. To date, many studies have been conducted on the changes in Chinese legal education since the late 1970s. However, the questions of why and how comparative law features in contemporary Chinese legal education are seldom explored. This chapter, therefore, examines the relevance of comparative law in Chinese legal education over the years.
