With the deepening of China’s new measures for opening-up, China has emerged as the “target country” for students from many countries around the world seeking to study abroad. In China, legal education for international students is closely linked to the overall improvement of international students’ training quality, which is conducive to improving the international education supply level for international students in colleges and universities, as well as maintaining the order of education for these students in China. In order to strengthen legal education for international students in China, it is necessary to set up public compulsory courses for legal education, form full-time teaching faculties, and explore the new cooperative teaching mode between the first classroom and the second classroom.
