Shaowei Mao

Assistant Professor of Law

Studying civil law has always been rewarding; yet mastery of its abstract concepts, sophisticated rules and underlying principles has never been easy. An innovative case method which is widely used in my teaching and research at STL has proved to be quite useful in understanding and demonstrating its richness, complexity and subtlety.”
