Hui Huang

China - PhD
It is a good experience to work with students with different backgrounds from different countries.

When reflecting on his decision to study at UNSW Faculty of Law, Huang is quick to acknowledge the assistance of his colleagues, the financial support provided by the School of Law, access to research databases and the space, facilities and administrative assistance provided by the Law Faculty to students. Of his supervisor, Angus Corbett, Huang says, “without him, I could not have done this.”

“It is a good university to be a student. More importantly for me as a research student you have access to a research environment with academic support. All the teachers are very approachable and offer to help you. It is a good experience to work with students with different backgrounds from different countries.”

Although Huang would not have been able to complete his work without travelling to China, his position in Australia has allowed him to research the area in greater depth than would have been possible had he remained there. Corporate law research in Australia is also a much more established discipline than in his country of origin.

Having completed his PhD, Huang wishes to gain teaching experience in Australia. He describes Chinese legal teaching as “more traditional. One person stands in front speaking, and the students write down what is said.” He would like to introduce undergraduate and LLM students in China to the “heuristic and interactive” model used by the UNSW Faculty of Law.
