The Office of Responsibility and Sustainability Actions of the College of Management invited Shu-Ching Hsu, Deputy Secretary General of the Taiwan Consumer Protection Association, to speak at the College on May 5, 2023, on the topic of “Introduction to Consumer Protection Law.” Professor Yi-Feng Chou of the Department of Finance opened the seminar with a speech.
In her lecture, Shu-Ching Hsu reminded the students that as consumers, they should always be vigilant and should not easily believe in advertisements and false propaganda, but rather should protect their rights and interests as consumers. She also discussed issues and case studies related to consumer protection law with the students and shared her own experience in fighting for the rights of consumers shopping online, shopping in physical stores, and signing contracts at gyms.
Shu-Ching Hsu encouraged the students to pay more attention to their rights in their daily lives, to understand the relevant laws and regulations, and to protect their rights in a timely manner. She highlighted the importance of legal protection of consumer rights, stating: “Legal protection is not about protecting good people or bad people; it protests people who know the law.” The purpose is to tell students that only by understanding the relevant laws and regulations can they better protect their own rights.
This presentation gave students a deeper understanding of consumer protection. Shu-Ching Hsu is a lawyer who has been practicing consumer protection law for many years. She has rich experience in the field and is highly trusted and respected by consumers and society. We believe that through this presentation, more people will have a more comprehensive understanding of consumer protection law and be better able to protect their own rights.
