To raise the awareness of financial technology (Fintech) among the general public and enterprises in Hong Kong, facilitate the healthy development of Fintech ecosystem in the city and promote it as a Fintech hub in Asia, the Executive eCommerce and FinTech Conference, co-organised by Lingnan University and the Smart City Consortium, was held on 2 November at the Zero Carbon Building.

21 October, 2017

In the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Asia University Rankings 2018 announced recently, Lingnan University becomes one of the top 100 Asian universities, up by 9 places from last year to the 100th.  Today’s Information Day is an ideal opportunity for secondary school students, teachers, parents and the general public to obtain latest information about the University and its programmes and admission arrangements, and experience the teaching and learning environment as well as campus life of the only liberal arts university in Hong Kong.

When Prof Sophia Law met a group of social workers five years ago and listened to their stories about Hong Kong’s problem of family violence, she was alarmed by the stark number of child victims and the on-going challenge in counselling especially the younger ones under the age of ten.  In fact, government statistics show that newly reported child abuse cases in Hong Kong between 2012 and 2016 ranged from 856 to 963 per year.  However, these figures are not a reflection of the full extent of the problem, as they do not capture unreported cases, or cases in which the child is not a direct sufferer but a witness.  With immature cognitive and language abilities, children often face difficulties in articulating and confronting their inner feelings as a result of violence – be it pain, fear, insecurity, guilt, or trauma.  This may inflict long-term negative effects on the children’s personal growth and interpersonal functioning.  The strong need for mitigation and intervention sparked Prof Law’s interest in looking into innovative and alternative ways to make a difference.

The following appointments and re-appointments to the Council and the Court of the University have been made recently.
