Third Legal Scholarship Workshop @ HKU (LSW@HKU) (Report)

The Third Legal Scholarship Workshop @ HKU was held at the Faculty of Law on 26-27 May 2016. Eight current or recently graduated PhD candidates from Stanford University, University of Michigan, Oxford University, University College London, National University of Singapore, Peking University, University of British Columbia and HKU presented papers on a wide range of legal topics including comparative corporate governance, regulation of Chinese shadow banking, socio-legal studies of foreign lawyers in Myanmar, role of “social license to operate” in mining law, alternative legal resolution of territorial dispute over the Diaoyu/Senkaku islands, legal status of Air Defense Identification Zone, developments of common law constitutional rights, and legal theory of authoritative agency in constitution-making.
    The presenters, together with our students and invited participants from Queen Mary University of London, University of Wisconsin and Chinese University of Hong Kong, engaged in intensive, vibrant and earnest discussion on both the substance of the presented papers and stylistic aspect of the presentation. They also benefited tremendously from the keynote session by Professor Johannes Chan and Professor Hualing Fu who shared their vast experiences and insights on the academic hiring process. 
      The workshop is organized and conducted by Dr Chen Jianlin, with ample assistance from Dr Qiao Shitong (who incidentally was one of the presenters of the inaugural LSW@HKU in 2013).
