(Beijing) – On the campus of the China University of Political Science and Law, an eye-catching monument inscribed by legal expert Jiang Ping with the words “Rule of Law for Everyone" stands tall.
At the university's 60th anniversary on May 16, Jiang said: “Personal independence and academic freedom is the soul of the university." The commemoration of the university's anniversary should be a reflection on its own shortcomings to seek a direction for future development, he said.
Jiang served as dean of the China University of Political Science and Law from 1998 to 2000. Although in the position for only two years, students and alumni called him “dean for life." In legal circles he is known as one of the “Three Legal Teachers," along with Guo Daohui and Li Bu.
Jiang was born in 1930 in Dalian, Liaoning Province, after which he experienced a lifetime of ups and downs. During a stay in the Soviet Union, Jiang served as chairman of the Chinese Student Association and graduated from Moscow State University with distinction in 1956. He then returned to China to teach at Beijing Institute of Politics and Law, the predecessor of the China University of Political Science and Law.
