Research:
Research Institute: Institute of Hong Kong Law
 
Due to the resumption of the exercise of sovereignty over Hong Kong by the Chinese Government, research on Hong Kong law and promotion of understanding of Hong Kong law became in great need. In January 1998, Shenzhen University was accredited the research institute of Hong Kong law by Shenzhen Municipal Government. The staff includes three Law School  teachers.
 
In the past 40 years, the institute has been stressing on education and research of Hong Kong law despite lack of hands and funds. Shenzhen University is not only the first research institute of Hong Kong law in the institutions of higher education in China, but also the earliest institute which can confer circulation in Hong Kong law.
