The relationship between China and ASEAN has become the most successful and dynamic model in the Asia-Pacific regional cooperation, while the legal exchanges and collaboration serve as an important guarantee for China-ASEAN relations. 

Many experts and scholars from well-known law schools exchanged their views at forums on international communication of legal education and cooperation mechanisms for international legal talent training. 

China-ASEAN international exchange and cooperation in legal education have been fruitful with the joint efforts of both sides. 

For example, the Southwest University of Political Science and Law (SWUPL) has cooperated with other law institutions in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Myanmar to explore a training model for developing "bilingual and dual law systems" in cultivating foreign-related legal talents. 

At the first session, the China-ASEAN Legal Research Center (CALRC) reached an agreement on strengthening the research on the rule of law in the Lancang-Mekong cooperation mechanism with five ASEAN countries, namely, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, and Myanmar, building a China-ASEAN community with a shared future.

They helped to enhance the legal risk prevention of Chinese enterprises investing in foreign countries and were also conducive to improving the local legal business environment.

In addition, the database and service platform for legal identification service centers in countries and regions along the Belt and Road was opened for trial operation, integrating nearly 600,000 pieces of laws and regulations, judicial precedents, international treaties, and legal information from ten ASEAN countries. 

At the intersection of the Belt and Road and the Yangtze River Economic Belt, Chongqing stands out for its advantageous strategic position, mature logistics development, and long-term corporation with ASEAN. 

As part of Chongqing's effort to build universities with internationalized humanistic features, the China-ASEAN Law Dean's Forum promotes the exchanges and cooperation between law schools in China and ASEAN countries.

"The CALRC has done a series of practical and productive work, which has effectively boosted the construction and development of the rule of law in Cambodia and other ASEAN countries," said H.E. Yuok Ngoy, Secretary of State, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport of Cambodia at the third session of the China-ASEAN Law Dean's Forum. "I would like to express our great appreciation and gratitude for this endeavor."

Established in 2010, the CALRC aims to focus on research on the construction of the rule of law in the China-ASEAN region, the construction of an ASEAN legal database, and the training of legal talents for ASEAN affairs through the integration of Chinese and ASEAN law and Juris.
