NCTU Professorship in IP laws and Training


Since 1994, we established the first university IP program in Taiwan and have trained more than 3000 patent engineers in Taiwan. The patent engineers from various organizations in turn have contributed significantly to the aggressive IPR portfolio of Taiwanese companies.

As of 2000, and I was the founding Director, we created the Graduate Institute of Technology Law which was the first of its kind in Taiwan 's legal education. We introduced a new paradigm of legal research emphasizing the empirical study instead of the statue interpretation which the traditional civil law system has taken as a core of legal study for a long time. Nowadays, our IPR program is the most leading and comprehensive one in Taiwan and it keeps abreast of the global IPR development.
