On 12 June 2008,  Dr Isabelle Wan, leader of TransAsia's employment practice, delivered a lecture at the Northwest University of Politics and Law in Xi'an to select faculty members and 30 students from the university's Employment Law Clinic. Dr. Wan's lecture was entitled "Approaching China's Employment Law: the Front Line, the Horizon and the Dream", and it addressed professional ethics for legal professionals, the background and current status of PRC employment law, and the application of the new Employment Contract Law.

The following day, Dr Wan attended a ceremony to commemorate both her appointment as an Adjunct Professor of the university, and the inauguration of TransAsia's Outstanding Employment Law Thesis Scholarship. The scholarship has been established to encourage innovative employment law research and foster active academic research among the university's students.

The Northwest University of Politics and Law places particular emphasis on employment law, and is one of the few universities in China to include employment law in their core curriculum for law students. For the full story and pictures of the event, please click here (Chinese)
