BlawgDog | 博铎法豆


Hi, I am Donnie.

Being a blogger, I founded this site in 1999 (one of the foremost Chinese-English bilingual legal blogs). Its name was previously “Legal Beans”. It was renamed to “BLAWGDOG” in 2005.  
作为网志作者,我于1999年设立「法学豆子」网站并更新至今。它是中国最早的个人法律网站之一。自2005年起改称「法豆 BLawgDog」。

Being a lawyer, I have 15+ years of experience in intellectual property, information & technology law, and related commercial laws. I  advise clients on internet regulations, privacy, as well as IP/IT-related cross-border litigations.  In recent years, I spent more time in data privacy in Asia, as well as management of cross-border legal affairs.*

Being an academic, I write articles and blog posts on law and the internet, as well as technology and social development.  Previously, I was an assistant professor with the Law Faculty of Yunnan University, a research fellow at the Center for IP Research at China University of Political Science and Law, and a fellow of the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard (2009-2011). Presently, I am a Steering Committee member of the Digital Asia Hub, a non-profit think tank collaborated by scholars and senior professionals across Asia and Pan Pacific. I am also leading courses for the postgraduate programs at the University of Hong Kong SPACE Executive Academy.   
作为学者,我关注法律、互联网及它们各自(或共同)对社会发展的影响。 我曾在云南大学法学院任教,也是中国政法大学知识产权研究中心研究员。2009-2011年,我在哈佛大学法学院担任伯克曼互联网与社会研究中心的研究员(Fellow)。目前,我是非盈利性的智库研究机构“数字亚洲中心”的指导委员会成员,该机构由亚太地区的学者和资深专业人士合作建立。此外,我还在香港大学SPACE企业研究院担任客座讲师。

I received two master’s degrees and two doctorate degrees from various universities.  This includes an LL.M. from the UC Berkeley School of Law, a JSD in civil and commercial law from the China University of Political Science and Law, and a Ph.D. in common law from the City University of Hong Kong. I was a Fulbright Scholar during 2009-2010.
