On 29 April, the Young Solicitor’s Group (“YSG”) organised its first Distinguished Speakers’ Luncheon of 2017. We were honoured to have Professor Lam Chiu-ying, SBS, former-Director of the Hong Kong Observatory and current Adjunct Professor of the Department of Geography and Resource Management with the Chinese University of Hong Kong, share his views on “Laws of Nature”, which was followed by an interactive Q&A session.
During his presentation, Professor Lam explained the correlation between natural law and statutes, introduced the concepts of environmentalism and conservatism, and drew distinctions between protecting human inhabitants and protecting nature. Not only was the talk inspiring but also entertaining.
YSG is grateful to Professor Lam for taking time out of his busy schedule to share his insightful ideas with our members, and YSG is also grateful to members who participated in the event on a Saturday afternoon.
For those who missed the talk, please note that a recording of Professor Lam’s speech has been uploaded onto the Law Society’s website at http://www.hklawsoc.org.hk/pub_e/news/video/20170508.asp.
