In the context of the “New Liberal Arts”, the trend of interdisciplinary research in linguistics in China is becoming increasingly prominent. Foreign language talents from a single disciplinary background can no longer satisfy the national development strategy. Therefore, the trend of “English + law” composite foreign language talents is put on the table. This paper discusses the necessity of cultivating “English+Law” composite talents from three aspects: the necessity for national macro strategy design, the necessity for economic and social development and trade globalization, and the necessity for optimization and sustainable development of English majors in colleges and universities. Clarifying the current situation of talent cultivation, the paper also points out the direction for cultivating interdisciplinary talents in terms of talent cultivation mode, composite curriculum system setting, and professional faculty construction.


New Liberal Arts; “English+Law”; composite talent cultivation
