In accordance with the principle of open recruitment, comprehensive assessment, and merit-based recruitment, the Law School of Ocean University of China (OUC) plans to recruit foreign English teachers for its OUC-UA Cooperative Law Program.


The University of Arizona was established in 1885, and 27 years later, Arizona became a state. The University of Arizona is a premier, top 20 Public Research Institution. In areas as diverse as astronomy, medicine, optics, entrepreneurship, dance, and law, UA faculty and programs are among the best in the United States.
Ocean University of China is a top-ranked comprehensive university in China that has long been supported by the Chinese government through its “Project 985” “Project 211” and “Project Double First-Class”.
UA and OUC established the OUC-UA Cooperative Law Program, which is the first and only Sino-U.S. dual degree undergraduate program that offers students the opportunity to study both Chinese and American legal systems over a four-year program and graduate with both an LL.B. from OUC and a B.A. in law from UA. Since its inception, the program has been and remains well-known for its academic rigor. The program is highly regarded among students, parents, and China’s legal circles. The first class of students from the OUC-UA joint degree program graduated in July 2019. Approximately 70% of graduates have been admitted to prestigious graduate law programs in China, U.S., U.K., and Australia.


English faculty members will be responsible for the daily English teaching tasks of the program, including course instruction for the students (at least12class hours per week), after-class tutoring, and related extracurricular activities.
