Brief Introduction

I have been engaged in the legislative and judicial work of environmental resources for a long time and participated in drafting all environmental resources legislation in China since 1985. I have got a wealth of teaching experiences till now and have been teaching since 2003. I was an adjunct professor and doctoral adviser in both China University of Political Science and Nanjing Agricultural University before and have trained 37 excellent doctoral as well as master students majored in environmental law so as to output compound professional talents for our country's green development.

In order to enhance students' practical abilities, we organized an interest study group on environmental law and led more than 60 students in various grades to participate in the ministerial-level projects of China Law Society. In addition, we have had several discussions concerning “Water Pollution Prevention and Control law (revised draft)”, “ Forest law (revised draft)” and so forth to improve students' abilities in comprehensive practice.
