About Ruoying

Ruoying published in both English and Chinese on commercial law, corporate law, theoretical and practice (in China) of regulation of land, financial market and environment. In her research and teaching, she tries to provide law and economic analysis of the the interaction between state regulation and private transaction. She’s the inaugural member of the Regulation Commission of the Administrative Sector of the China Law Society. Her recent publication in English addressed bond issues and other contractual arrangements in overcoming the conventional difficulty in exercising the eminent domain power and how platform obligations can be reformed with lessons from the better-established practice of corporate governance and securities regulation.

Prior to academic life, Ruoying worked for international law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in its Beijing and Hong Kong offices for over 5 years on M&As, capital market work and restructuring of China's state-owned enterprises, including financial institutions. She’s the Chevening Scholar and the Shell Centennial Scholar while in the University of Oxford and the John. M. Olin Scholar in the University of Chicago Law School.
