The sixth Sino-German Economic Law Symposium got underway at Tongji University in Shanghai on April 9.

The event was co-organized by the law schools of Tongji University and Germany's Humboldt University and the University of Konstanz; the three schools take turns to host the event every year.

This year's event was themed on "Social Networks and Big Data" and focused on challenges to public welfare, privacy and private life. Experts from the three schools shared ideas on related legal issues concerning laws of competition, contract, labor, and intellectual property.

Professor Singer from Humboldt University was nominated a guest professor of Tongji on the sidelines of the event.

Since 2012, the three schools have maintained steady relationships with each other. They jointly founded a Sino-German International Economic Law Institute that year and began a mutual graduate student cultivation program in 2013.

By the end of 2017, some 30 students from Tongji and 20 German students had finished their studies and received double master's degrees. They had gained expertise in Chinese and German languages and legislation.
