CESL aims to offer high-level legal education to law students and legal professionals, to conduct Sino-European legal research and consultancy activities and to substantially contribute to the advancement of the rule of law in China. It was set up in September 2008 as an initiative of the European Commission and the Ministry of Education in China and is established within the China University of Political Science and Law (CUPL). It operates as a consortium among 16 European and Chinese Institutes of Higher Education, led by the University of Hamburg (UHH).

IPR2 has co-operated previously with CESL as part of its long-term training in China on IP law towards a comprehensive education in IP and related fields, to achieve a strong understanding among Chinese decision-makers, experts, industry and right holders on the importance and function of IP.
