On June 29, Angelina Lee and Peter C.L. Lo, Partners of the Woo, Kwan, Lee & Lo Solicitors & Notaries, Counselor Cheung Wing Yui and lawyers Lo Kung Kin and Zhu Xuanfeng talked face-to-face with students who were ready for the summer-vacation internship in Hong Kong. They met in Meeting Room 213 of the Law School, and the meeting was hosted by Professor Michael Palmer (Deputy Dean of Law School). Mr. Su Wenji (Party Branch Secretary of Law School), Mr. Chan Hok Yee (Administrative Director of Law School) and Gavin Kwok (Senior Manager of Friends of Shantou University Limited) also attended the activity.

Professor Palmer began the meeting by introducing all guests from Woo, Kwan, Lee & Lo Solicitors & Notaries. Then, the nine interns introduced themselves in English and talked about their expectations for working in Hong Kong. Peter C.L. Lo shared some of the interesting cases he has dealt with. Angelina Lee also spoke with the students, and said that she hoped they will benefit from the internship and learn something from the lawyers that can not be learned from books.

Lo Kung Kin has studied law in mainland China and she is now working for a law firm in Hong Kong. She said that interns should not expect to get a full understanding of the entire legal system from only a one-month long internship. Students should focus on how to apply the knowledge they have in their hands and make sure that both lawyers in Hong Kong and students from STU can understand each other’s legal system better. She also encouraged students to be curious and thoughtful about everything around them, and realize that they can learn a lot by observing daily life.

Professor Palmer also shared his expectations of the internship students. He said that Law School will consider all suggestions raised by students and the firms that offer internships, in order to improve the internship-related work.

Students who had internships last year in Wuhan, Hubei Province and Dongguan, Guangdong Province also shared their experience working in courts or law firms in mainland China. They showed some photos they took during their internships, which received praise from the audience. “Are you going to be a judge after the internship?” The question posed by lawyer Lo Kung Kin was actively discussed by all the attendees.

Woo, Kwan, Lee & Lo Solicitors & Notaries has a good cooperative relationship with STU Law School and accepts two interns from the Law School every year. It also helps to host activities to select more opportunities for students from the Law School to communicate more with lawyers and interns in Hong Kong.
