Personal profile


Juan joined the UWA Law School in July 2016. Before that she had worked as Assistant Professor in Law with Zhejiang University of China since 2013. She holds degrees in law from the University of Sydney (Ph.D.), China Foreign Affairs University (LL.M.) and Sichuan University (LL.B.). Juan' PhD was funded by the China Scholarship Council — University of Sydney Postgraduate Research Scholarship. Her doctoral dissertation unveils the relative inadequacy and rigidity of the regulatory scope prescribed to developing countries by their WTO and WTO-plus commitments to spur growth, value addition and technological advances, highlighting a profound need to reconcile localized and international policy agendas in the common pursuit of development. Juan was admitted to the legal profession in mainland China in 2008.
