Professor Zhu Moderates Technology Finance Forum at STL
On December 15, STL and Peking University Shenzhen Graduate School (PKUSZ) hosted the first PKUSZ Technology Finance Forum. The Forum was moderated by STL Professor Zhu Daming and brought together regulators and business leaders in the technology finance industry, several of whom are Peking University alumni, to discuss developments, challenges and opportunities in the FinTech industry.
In his welcome address, STL Dean Philip McConnaughay remarked that, “Technology is disrupting and transforming financial services in ways we could not have imagined ten or even five years ago. And the innovations in financial services are causing additional innovations and benefits throughout society. We think of STL in much the same way. STL is the only law school in the world to offer a dual degree program in both China Law and American Common Law, which we increasingly blend and supplement in ways responsive to the advanced internationalized economy of Shenzhen and the Greater Pearl River Delta. Our goal at STL is to disrupt and transform legal education and legal services in much the same way as technology is transforming financial services.”
Keynote speakers included Professor Qian Yulin from East China University of Political Science and Law, Professor Ge Weijun from Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, and Huang Hengzhong, Director of Shenzhen Nanshan Hi-Tech Incubator.
