With the continuous and in-depth implementation of our country's legislation to govern the country, citizens' awareness of popularizing and using the law must also be continuously enhanced. As high-quality talents, college students are also the backbone of socialist construction. The establishment of students' correct legal concept is not only related to the construction of our socialist society under the rule of law, but also closely related to the future and destiny of the Chinese nation. The purpose of this article is to study the legal education in colleges and universities. First, it outlines the knowledge background of legal education and the internal logic of college legal education and social stability. Secondly, a number of related questionnaires that can be selectively answered are carefully designed. The main problem focused on the basic status, and analyzed the status of legal education on this basis. The experimental results show that only 6% of students think that their families value and often provide legal training. Discuss the course of reform and innovation, and put forward practical countermeasures to strengthen law education in colleges under the new situation.
