Visiting Researcher Zilin Hao

We are currently hosting visiting researcher Zilin Hao, PhD researcher at Wuhan University, in January-June for a six-months research stay. She is working on her PhD thesis (Exclusive jurisdiction for cross-border litigation) and got LLM and LLB in Law (China University of Political Science and Law).

She presents herself: “My research interests focus on the fields of private international law and international civil procedure. Before I came to Rotterdam, I learned a lot from the publications of Prof. Xandra Kramer. Thus, I appreciate Professor Kramer, who integrated me into her research group. During my stay, Xandra Kramer and her team gave me warm welcome and care. Most
importantly, by participating biweekly academic seminar with professional
teammates, I can consider my thesis question from the comparative perspective of
European private international law and civil procedure law in a straight way.
I cherish this rare opportunity for an academic visit and look forward to learning more in the coming months.”

During his time at UCL Laws, he continued his research on third-party litigation funding in Europe, with a particular emphasis on the jurisdiction of England and Wales, under the supervision of Dr. John Sorabji (UCL) and Masood Ahmed (Leicester). Adrian took the opportunity to carry out qualitative empirical research in the form of interviews with key industry stakeholders and experts. He also discussed his research with peers at a PhD Work in Progress Forum at UCL Laws, benefitting
from constructive feedback and criticism. Moreover, Adrian attended lectures and seminars of interest and expanded his network in the vibrant and global city of London.
