STL Hosts Summer Honors Program for Top University Students

From July 31 through August 7, 2019, Peking University School of Transnational Law (“STL”) hosted Summer Honors Camp for over 100 students from China’s most respected universities. This included Peking University, Fudan University, Wuhan University, Sun Yat-Sen University among others.

The Camp started with a welcome speech from Dean Philip McConnaughay. In keeping with our traditions, STL have prepared an introductory course on J.D.&J.M. In class, students experienced the charm of the Socratic teaching method and the bilingual teaching environment.

At the same time, under the leadership of the C.V. Starr instructors, students began to learn about case analysis methods , before practicing it in a mock court.

During the Summer Honors Camp, the students visited the Tencent headquarters, experiencing Shenzhen’s cutting-edge development of science and technology. They also visited the Shenzhen Court of International Arbitration and Shenzhen Nanshan Intellectual Property Protection Center.

In addition, STL also invited alumni and students from different undergraduate backgrounds to hold sessions for the SHP students. During those sessions, alumni and students shared their unique views on study, life, work and family and actively answered a series of questions raised by SHP students.

On August 7, the closing ceremony of the Summer Honors Camp was held at STL. Dean Philip McConnaughay acknowledged the students’ performance at the Camp and later, alongside honorary Deputy Dean Stephen Yandle, presented them with certificates and souvenirs.

STL’s SHP program was established in 2009. Many of STL’s students and alumni had participated in SHP before enrolling in STL. For more information about SHP 2020, please contact
