Student, Peking University School of Transnational Law
Sun Lan is a third-year student in Peking University School of Transnational Law. She grew up in Anqing, a city on the Yangtze River. Impressed by China’s increasingly robust interaction with the rest of the world, she chose international politics as her undergraduate major at Peking University. Later, Sun Lan became deeply immersed in history, economics and sociology, and obtained a second bachelor’s degree — in economics — at Peking University’s National School of Development.
In her final year at college, she began to write for a renowned financial journal, and got to know more about clashes between Chinese and foreign business enterprises. It occurred to her that interactions between different legal and political systems are far more powerful than she thought they were. This notion drove her to pursue the study of transnational law, and she was advised to study at Peking University School of Transnational Law. Sun Lan says she enjoyed life there, and that the strong academic atmosphere stimulated her to think. She is working as a part-time editorial assistant for the European Law Journal.
