Academic Excellence, International Education, Awe-Inspiring Experiences

         Knowledge lies in every corner if only one is bestowed with an inquisitive mind, and writings are at one’s fingertips if he is seasoned in the ways of the world.
My postgraduate and doctorial study at SJTU can be summed up into three valuable experiences (law practice, overseas study and the research in Ministry of Commerce), two unexpected harvests (serving as a legal adviser with one academic paper published during the work-study program in Australia) and the genuine feelings.
With law as my profession, theory and practice are of equal importance to me: practice in law helps to smooth over the defects in academic studies, while reflections on theories can help probe into problems in actual life. That is what we call ‘read massively and travel broadly to be well-cultured’.
From November 2010, I was honored to receive the sponsorship of “Chinese Government Graduate Student Overseas Study Program” and pursued my doctorate in La Trobe University in Australia while studying postgraduate courses in global business law for a whole year. The valuable experiences of this international education rendered me a great chance to focus on my academic research and opportunities to participate in international seminars and actual lawsuits.
Graduation resembles the process of cocoon into a butterfly. As a member of SJTU family, I am appreciative of the favorable study atmosphere as well as the great platform SJTU has provided for me, and the notion ‘to choose SJTU is to choose responsibility’ will always be engraved on my mind.
