Proposed Annual Plan by Wesley Wong

  1. 1. The Undergraduate Law Society Executive Committee ElectionProposed Annual Plan 2013- 2014 Present to You by No. 1 Presidential Candidate Wesley Wong 1
  2. 2. My Aims My main aims as a potential president for the ULS can becategorize onto four different levels; firstly as a single individualwithin the ULS, then as a group of law students within the ULS,followed by as a single group, which is the law society itself andfinally as an organization in the society. 1. As a single individual within the ULS My aim is to maximize individual welfare; to listen to students’ needs and provide with them what they want. (i) Printing credits In the survey conducted for the election task, many students have demanded printing credits. However, it may not be easy to negotiate with CUHK for a certain amount of free printing quotas provided for every law student. Therefore, one possible method is to consider what medicine students have been doing for printing. It is that we will collect from each student a subscription fee of about $300, and we will print lecture notes for them (we will only print for them certain materials, to be discussed after executive members are finalized.) outside CUHK for a cheaper price ($0.1 instead of $0.3 per paper, there may also be discounts as the amount of 2
  3. 3. printing will be enormous.) during weekends and distribute the notes to them every Monday.(ii) Stationery selling Many students would like to have stationery selling service provided by the ULS. We can achieve this by purchasing cheap stationeries from outside CUHK (To Kwa Wan in the case of medical society) and sell it to law students for a fair price. General stationery selling will be held once a week, but students can still purchase from executive members of ULS on request in case there are urgent needs during lectures.(iii) Food and drinks during breaks Another issue students are concerned about is that they do not have enough time to get to the tuck shop on LG/F to buy food or drinks during breaks. One possible method is that to negotiate with the tuck shop owners and ask them to set up a small booth outside lecture theatre 7 just selling drinks and snacks. Another possible way which is more likely to work is that we can purchase some stocks of food and drinks from the tuck shop in advance and re-sell them outside LT7 so that students can get refreshments instantly. 3
  4. 4. (iv) Secondhand Book Sale One of the main problems student encountered during this year’s book sale is that a huge crowd of students was stucked in the society room thus students outside the room could not manage to get in and when they do, most books have already been sold. One possible solution is to sell these secondhand books in a larger area such as areas outside lecture theatres or to conduct it online.2. As a group of law students within the ULS My aim is to organize both academic-based and recreational activities to students so that they can actually work hard and play hard. Another aim is to enhance co- operation and communication between students to achieve a sense of belonging and sense of unity between them. (i) Orientation Camps Students start to know each other every year in orientation camps. However, some freshers may be too shy and hence failed in creating a bond with their group mates. As meeting new friends is vital in helping freshers to get used to university life, it is really important that they are making new friends. Therefore one suggestion to improve this is to put a “spy” (year 2 students) who pretends to be a fresher into each group to mix the freshers well so that they 4
  5. 5. could be led by experienced students and enjoy themselves. Target: Year 1 students(ii) Study and discussion groups At the start of each academic year, year 1 students may not know each other well and therefore some students may not be able to find a “revision buddy” to discuss about their assignments and courses. Thus, discussion groups can be assigned to them for the first month until they get used to the learning environment and have their own friends to study with. Target: Year 1 students(iii) Court trips Court trips may be organized so that students can actually experience what it is like when a case is in trial and understand court structures which can then be related back to their lectures. Target: Year 1&2 students(iv) Book sharing session There are many law books in the law library and it is difficult to choose which one to borrow. Therefore students can share law books they find useful to other students and express their views on 5
  6. 6. that book, fictions about law can also be recommended to students. Target: All 4 years(v) LLB cycling team/ Bike trip to Buddha on 1st Oct As law students are continually under stress, it is important to give chances for them to relax. Apart from common sports such as football and basketball, cycling is also a relaxing sport. Members can practice in Shatin on a weekly basis and when they are ready, trips going to Disneyland from Tung Chung or cycling to the Buddha to have vegetarian meal can be organized! Target: All 4 years(vi) Talent Show Talent shows of past years have only been limited to LLB students. However, as there are not enough participants in the JD programme for them to organize a talent show, we can co-organize this activity together so that more people can enjoy our students’ talents. This also give us a chance to meet JD students so that we can share our experiences about our law courses. Target: All 4 years + JD students 6
  7. 7. 3. As a society in CUHK My aim is to enhance the reputation of the ULS and to provide with people a sense of professionalism when they mention about the ULS. (i) Welfare products Products which can resemble students as a group under the Faculty of Law will be produced and sold to law students. This includes computer bags, jackets, ties, badges, etc. We aim to provide products which are only designed for law students so that a sense of honor is created and also these products can symbolize us as a professional union in which our members are united. (ii) Joint-Universities legal conference The three universities which provide law courses will organize a legal conference which last for 3-4 days in Easter. Workshops will be organized on debating skills and interview techniques. Barristers and solicitors will also be invited to share their careers with students. Moreover, students will have a chance to have discussions on latest legal issues happening around the world! 7
  8. 8. 4. As an organization in the society My aim is to raise public awareness on our society that we are not just focusing on our studies and future careers but also aware of what is happening around the world and contribute to the public with our knowledge and be an important part of the society. (i) Voluntary works co-organized with St. James Settlement It is our responsible to serve the public, especially helping those in need. Although we still cannot give professional legal assistance to people, we can still help them in other ways such as visiting old people. (ii) Standard Chartered Hong Kong Marathon 2014 Law students can participate in this meaningful event as a group. By joining the marathon, not only they can raise money for charity, but it is also beneficial for their health! Students may also have a chance to win the most supportive group award if there are more than 100 people participating! 8

  10. 10. Conclusion By organizing these activities, I hope that students can build asense of belonging and unity towards CUHK and the faculty of law, that they know they are studying the right subject at theright place. I also hope that they can identify their future career path and work hard towards it; to persist in whatever they aredoing and never give up. Finally, I wish that by participating inall sorts of voluntary works, students can actually learn how toserve others by heart and to uphold your own beliefs no matter what happens. All these can be concluded with three words, UNITY, SEDULITY and SINCERITY. Please vote for Presidential Candidate NO.1 WESLEY WONG if you share the same belief as me. 10
