Their prominent academic accomplishments have laid the imperishable foundation for the Institute of International Law.

Founded in 1980, the Institute of International Lawwas the first college-based academic institution on international law research and one of the earliest to grant master, doctoral and postdoctoral degrees in science of law. The Institute was approved as a key institute in 1987 by the National Education Commission and a major participant in 1988.
