ULS ELECTION 2014 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE NO.1 CHERIE TAM YEAR PLAN


OVERVIEW Dear all, I am Cherie Tam, Presidential Candidate of the Undergraduate Law Society this year. Just two months have flown by since I began my legal studies, yet this little time has managed to convince me of my desire not just to be part of the community, but to contribute to our desires to elevate the Faculty of Law to new heights. Leadership in an academic backdrop is something I have yet to experience; the chance to lead a student body of almost 400 people is something previously unimaginable with sports teams and various other programs. I hope to successfully accommodate and integrate the wide range of interests within our student body, and reenact an environment ideal for nurturing future successes as to make us all proud. I believe our students and Faculty would greatly proliferate with the ULS’s work – a cause I am wholehearted dedicated and committed to, that we would share your concerns unequivocally and pave our ambitions to reality. An easy-going person, with my strong communication and interpersonal skills has helped establish a wide network of connections that would prove resourceful in event planning. I would also describe myself as a strong team player and leader, possessing an edge in settling conflicts, identifying individual strengths and problem solving. In addition, being reflective allows me to evaluate performances and come up with valid and realistic improvements. My stance is that there is no person bigger than the whole, hence arrogance sits no place with me and discourteous doings will not be tolerated. This ensures you, with your concerns and opinions are always heard and acted on by the ULS team. I am aware and ready of the responsibility that is bestowed with such a position – presence, confidence being vital elements alongside the demeanor to represent and serve Law students of CUHK. Past experiences have sufficiently endowed me with the imperative skill of leadership, including captaining sports teams, organizing volunteering projects amongst others – activities that wholly tested my organizational abilities and time management. I am confident I would be able to cope with ULS duties no matter how strenuous, that your needs are guaranteed to be listened to and followed up in our best efforts, that I possess the aptness to work alongside and guide our ULS team to deliver a truly enjoyable and unforgettable year for you all. Yours sincerely,


AIMS & MISSIONS Through my Aims & Missions, I hope to accomplish my overall goal of accommodating the wide range of interests within our student body, delivering an excellent experience reading Law at the institution, and most of all reenact an environment ideal for nurturing future successes as through the following: 1) Enhance relationships between the Faculty and students, bridging communication gaps; as well as between students 2) Ensure and create opportunities for self-development, enrichment and welfare 3) Foster a harmonious learning environment and the holistic integration of the student body 4) Promote outside image through increased interactions between institutions and legal bodies

The aim of the activity is to organize a welcoming reception for matriculates, facilitate relationships between matriculates and existing students, and allow delegated participants to take part in leadership positions. Potential limitations/ Details needed to be considered  Sufficient promotion of the orientation camp is needed during the information session day for freshmen in summer  An invitation of recruiting helpers for the camp is needed  A screening process for helpers is required to make sure all helpers show the sincerity and willingness to help  A finalized list of participants is needed for contacting them  Pre-camp is needed to ensure the practicality of game and to allow a smooth rundown of events  Since the camp is within CUHK campus (except City Hunt and the Beach Day), the pre-ocamp may sometimes not match the reality  The decision of the venue of pre camp has to be decided fairly early to make sure places are available  The booking of function rooms and accommodation halls need to be done beforehand  The health and safety of the freshmen need to be carefully taking care of  Water needs to continuously to be supplied to freshmen since it is summer

Chu College: Stephen Hall About Photo Days have both ‘College Photo Day’ and ‘Faculty Photo Day’ as composites. A balloon bridge and other decorations of choice will grace shooting venues at College Photo Days, in order to provide graduates visually stimulating photographs. An extra service this year is the free Polaroid taking and the low-cost selling of Polaroid album, as Polaroid photos are handy and small enough to be kept in the wallets/purses. The aim of the activity is to mark the progression of traditional rites of passage and create fond memories of undergraduate life. Endorsing graduating gifts for graduates are also on our part well-wishing them into their futures. Potential limitations/ Details needed to be considered  The frame of the balloon bridge is needed to be ordered  The making of the balloon bridge takes a long time to be set up  A roster is needed to ensure people could take a little rest while doing everything efficiently since it is a whole day event

WELFARE 1. Second-Hand Book Sale Target: Years 1-4 Law Students Second Hand Book Sales allows alumni and seniors to sell legal textbooks and other publications to younger grades. A popular event annually, payment and ordering procedures will be kept efficient in order to gain productivity and also ensure accuracy of dealings. The aim of the activity is to tackle financial concerns amongst students of buying textbooks and other school materials, while promoting an environmentally conscious regime and image. 2. Folders/Notebook/Binder Targeting Years 1-4 Law Students, the creation of a CUHK Law folder/notebook is costfeasible will be an original inventory that seeks to benefit our students, and orders will be dispatched and dealt by with a local manufacturer. The aim of making and distributing such products is to establish a stronger sense of identity and belonging in CUHK Law, while being practical in assisting students in organization and betterment of study and revision methods. 3. Graduation Gift Obtaining opinions and ideas from Year 4 forecoming graduates, more budget will be put on producing a graduation gift to graduates instead of a gradate year book. Since II personally believe memory is the most important thing that should be treasured, a tailor made album together with a handmade Polaroid album would be ideal. This cooperates with the idea of having Polaroid photo taking service on Photo Day, hoping a unique ULS photo album will be kept with you since the start of your career journey. 4. Zip-up Hoodies Pioneering a new design of hoodies by adding zips at the front as to deviate from custom, it is an innovative style that students can wear in and out of school. Hoodies are a cost efficient and popular choice of attire by university students, and in cooler months act as a good go-to choice for going to school and other places. The zips allow the hoodie to be easily wearable, so students could alternate their choice between strongly air conditioned rooms and the warmer weather outside. Rather than having one colour, choices of two available will be provided to allow a freedom of selection for people. The finalized choice will be decided once a voting is done between all ULS members.


5. Range of Accessories Men: ties, sleeve buttons and tie clips Women: Blouse pins These products will be obtained for law students as through a supplier, and prices will be adjusted for students hence it will be affordable. Accessories are a good addition to welfare, especially in times of emergency when students are suddenly summoned to events, especially business formal events. The fact that law students are often involved in formal occasions that require such attire also makes the inclusion of the availability of accessories desirable and useful. Although the cost of ordering these type of accessories will be relatively more expensive than others, these costly yet beautiful accessories will attract not only current students to buy but also alumni. The design has yet to be released, but it will be based on the logo of the Undergraduate Law Society. 6. Laptop Cases Computers are an instrumental learning tool that many students bring to school, for example easing the process of taking notes and also a chance to do assignments and various works. As a result, laptop cases are popular accessories and help with our schoolwork. The most common laptop sizes come in 11 and 13 inches and the cases will accommodate these dimensions, and will bear the ULS logo. Manufacturers will supply our orders. 7. Student Discounts Discounts for shopping and dining will be obtained for law students, in areas across Hong Kong Island and New Territories. At the moment, I have already confirmed discounts from 4 places, ranging from western cafes to Japanese restaurant/sushi bars.


8. Big Sale An innovative idea from HKU’s Stock Sale, this day is when all pre-ordered welfare will be distributed to ULS members. Ordering form will be distributed with sufficient time beforehand. This addition day will help to reduce the paperwork needed to be done by us, but yet increase the number of welfare items available. The sale will be held twice a year, once at the start of each semester. Welfare items include: - ULS Short Sleeved T-shirt - ULS Long-sleeved T-shirt - Accessories - Limited number of stationaries 9. Stationary Sale This day will be the collection of pre-ordered stationary. The time set for this sale will be near the start of both semesters where folders, notebooks and binders will be needed. They are expected to be at a price lower than both outside CUHK and CUSU shop. Welfare items include: - Folders - Notebooks - Binders - Laptop Cases 9. Coffee or Tea?! This will be in line with the Fairtrade Day which is mentioned in the activities section. Beside of doing external promotion of ULS in CUHK, we will be serving you all with a choice of either coffee or tea on that week with Fairtrade licensed products.


THROUGH THE PROPOSAL OF SUCH ACTIVITIES AND WELFARE, I HOPE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE IMPROVEMENT OF OUR MODERN SCHOOL AND ALLUDE TO THE VISIONS OF OUR STUDENTS. PRIOR EXPERIENCE IN LEADERSHIP POSITIONS HAVE ENRICHED ME AND CULTIVATED MY DESIRE IN TAKING THIS CHALLENGE AND FULFILL EXPECTATIONS OF A 400 PEOPLE STRONG STUDENT BODY I ASPIRE TO DELIVER AN EXCELLENT UNDERGRADUATE EXPERIENCE READING LAW AT CUHK, TO PROMOTE THIS FACULTY AND TO ESTABLISH CLOSER TIES BETWEEN OTHER LEGAL INSTITUTIONS IN HONG KONG AND THE LEGAL PROFESSION
