At around 2:30 in the afternoon, on the 1st November 2019, around 50 or so students and teachers from Beihang University Law School visited the Beijing office of Lifang & Partners for a special seminar in English on Drafting Contracts. Beihang University Law School was ranked 15th out of 600 Chinese law schools in 2018.
Mr. Liu Qingtao, Partner, warmly welcomed our guests from Beihang University and introduced them to the history and values of Lifang & Partners, especially professionalism, conscientiousness, and efficiency. After, Mr Liu held a Q&A session about professional practice.
Next, Mr. Chris Fung, Foreign Legal Counsel, delivered a seminar about Drafting Contracts. With his rich experiences in legal practice, Chris shared some of his knowledge and opinions on drafting contracts with the students. He also talked about university life in the UK, and encouraged the students to build their own styles libraries early on, read as much as they can in general, and, most importantly, “play hard, work hard”.
Also speaking at the event was Ms. Li Junxia, Senior Associate, who is an alumnus of Beihang University Law School. She reminisced with students about her time at Beihang and discussed her own career path with them. Ms. Li was inundated with questions from the students, including one about how to develop their careers and the importance of studying abroad. We have no doubt that Ms. Li is a very positive role model for the students, who showed obvious affection for her.
Lifang & Partners is devoted to developing the next generation of lawyers by sharing legal knowledge, supporting legal research, promoting professional ethics, and encouraging young legal practitioners to study hard, serve society and practice diligently.
Many of the partners at Lifang & Partners serve as mentors or visiting professors in law schools across China. Moreover, Lifang & Partners have sponsored many legal research projects, forums and conferences to contribute to the education and training of future lawyers.
