Prof. Hao ZHANG was interviewed in a recent SCMP article “Legal expertise in climate change at Chinese University Hong Kong”. In the article, Prof. Zhang introduces the CUHK LAW LLM in Energy and Environmental Law (LEL) Programme and comments that lawyers have an essential role to play in the process of the increasingly pressing global, regional and local environmental challenges which highlight the urgent need to integrate environmental protection into business operation. Current CUHK LAW student Anjle Gupta opines that the LEL Programme provides a micro and macro outlook towards understanding energy, and the relationship between energy and environment. CUHK LAW graduate Dixon Lai echoes that the LEL Programme has equipped him with the skills and knowledge to confidently pursue a career in the environmental and energy field or a possible PhD in the future.
In January 2020, the SCMP also interviewed Prof. Lutz-Christian WOLFF, Dean of CUHK LAW, in an article “On course to master the intricacies of China’s laws”. In the article, Prof. Wolff introduces the CUHK LAW LLM in Chinese Business Law (CBL) Programme and says that China’s rapidly increasing global presence, evidenced by the Belt and Road Initiative, will eventually lead to an “export” and “internationalization” of Chinese law that “[a]s a result, Chinese law must be understood in a global context”. Student Danae Wheeler from New Zealand comments that CUHK LAW professors provide students with a rigorous understanding of the processes and principles of civil and commercial law in China, “enabling me to better understand the financial and legal implications of the expanding trade and business relationship between China and the world”.
