    ★讀書計畫(Study Plan or Statement of Purpose):
    藉由一份讀書計畫可以顯示一個申請者如何用英文適切地表達想法,因為寫一份好的讀書計畫需要清楚的架構組
    織與英文寫作能力。好的讀書計畫應該要傳達申請者想要深造領域的深入想法。而這也是準備文件中,最具個人
    彩色的部份。申請者可以在讀書計劃裡加強本身成績不理想的部分,藉由其他方面的學術表現、社團活動等。例
    如參與的研究企劃、專題等等,有時這些東西能讓審核資料的人員更加瞭解申請者的能力。


    ◎讀書計畫組成架構:

    ‧申請動機:重點在於敘述為何申請該科系,其影響的原因為何;而尤以非本科系者,須要特別解釋之且對自己
    未來的影響。另一部分是敘述申請該學校的理由,這部分則需足夠了解學校的狀況,且能具體的說原因,如:學
    校設備、著名的課程與師資、學校出名人等。

    ‧在校表現:
    主要為讓審核人員了解學生於大學時間的表現,焦點於表現好的科間;而若有被當的科目,要特別
    解釋被當的原因,並說明該科目成績已補回。而另一方面則可強調,學術研究計畫(說明本身之強項及想成為進
    一步求學的誘因)、校內外的社團活動、學生會等活動表現,如:活動獎章、證書、證照等,可以顯示健全人格
    、造就表達能力、善組織分析等。

    ‧工作表現:
    內容在強調工作過程中,是否有任何特殊經驗與所學到的體驗、啟發與成長及所遇到問題的解決方
    法和態度。如:產業展覽、合作計畫等。

    ‧未來計畫:
    分為短期(一~二年內計畫:在學的修課計畫或學習方向及在留學前做的準備)、中期(二~五年
    內計畫:完成學業後的工作計畫)及長期計畫(展望未來、終生志業);而建議在撰寫以中期作為計畫的主軸,
    連貫短期與長期,較易有說服力及避免衝突感。


    ◎讀書計畫撰寫原則:

    ‧文章簡潔且層次分明小心重覆已交待過的資料,把握機會深入說明自己的狀況、立場與想法。

    勿用過於艱深字眼,儘量以直接的方式,因評審沒有時間推敲文字裡的涵意。

    避免概括性文字,具體說明,較能表達自己個性色彩且不模糊焦點。

    ‧在歐美地區表達直接為主,尤以在說明優點、成就時,勿用以退為進方式敘述。

    ‧表達時強調重點、明確,如:非重點,如中小學的課外活動;非明確,如都喜歡。

    ‧小心觸及宗教、政治、男女關係等字眼。

    反覆檢查文法、拼字、語意,是否有誤;內容是否重覆無重點,立場不明確。

    ‧對學校要有清楚的了解,詞語太過於共通性,易產生無誠意的態度。

    Statement of Purpose
    LLM




    When I entered university in 1992, Taiwan was undergoing drastic political transition, shifting from Authoritarian to
    Democracy. The long repressed freedom and human rights belief affected every aspect of our society, particularly
    our political and legal system. No longer acting as a tool used by the authority for strict social control, the highly logical
    legal system began to develop and represent the ideology and execution of fair and justice. At that time, I became
    tremendously interested in law and passed a very competitive National College & University Entrance Exam to study in
    the prestigious Soochow University Department of Law.

    Soochow University Department of Law is renowned for its teaching in Comparative Jurisprudence and Commercial Law.
    Students must go through a five-year program to thoroughly understand Continental Law and Anglo-American Law. The
    required first year JD courses include American Constitution, American Criminal Law, Contracts, Torts and etc. In addition,
    the commercial law covers company law for both Taiwan and the US, tax law and legal statues related to stock and bonds.
    Considering Taiwan's goal in building a healthy and efficient financial market to replace Hong Kong and Singapore in
    becoming Asia-Pacific Financial Center, I chose to concentrate my study in this field. Aside from legal courses related to
    Stock and Bonds and Tax Law, I also took copyright Law, International Economics, and International Organizations: GATT WTO
    and etc. Outside of class, I was on the Soochow University Baseball Team and was the captain for the team from 1992 to 1995.
    After graduation from Soochow University, I was one of the only five students in my class passing the National Graduate School
    Entrance Exam. In Graduate Law Institute, I further researched the ideological backgrounds and history of our legal process,
    procedures and the legislation of legal statues. Through my study, I hoped to have a deeper understanding and gain insight to
    our legal system instead of merely practicing legal statues mechanically. My graduate courses included Current Economics,
    Political Science, Social Beliefs, and Ideology. I also strengthen my understanding in Methodology. My study in graduate school
    greatly benefited my legal pursuit. As a result, I was selected to participate in National Cheng-Chi University Academic Visit
    to the Mainland China. Upon finishing graduate school, I started my job in a future trading company. With my legal background,
    I was an auditor for my company, in charge of setting internal company regulations and participating in auditing rules of securities
    and futures exchange commission.

    My two years of work experience has deepened my understanding of Taiwan's financial capitalist market. Because Taiwan is far
    behind from other countries in its structure or regulations, it is not qualified to take on the role of Asia-Pacific Financial Center.
    In particularly, Taiwan lacks professional knowledge in its secondary capital market management and control in related products
    and regulations. Often, regulations are borrowed from other countries to be cut and paste to get by the legislative needs despite
    the fact that these regulations may not suit Taiwan's market situation. Because of the lack of adequate knowledge of other
    countries' legal structures, conflicts among the different regulations we borrowed can be observed everywhere. To overcome
    these conflicts and problems in our legislation, various government departments make up their own rules when they see fit.

    This temporary relief has not only caused tremendous confusion in management; it has also provided loophole for businesses to
    get through normal operations. Taiwan's management of its capitalist market is similar to those of other Asia countries in its
    overemphasize on increasing trade amount while neglecting market stability. As a result, businesses have enormous power to
    make unreasonable demands. Meanwhile, administrative organization intrudes openly interfere market functioning. This inefficiency
    in our legal structures has repeated financial crises and market crushes. Not only our capitalist market failed it function, investors
    and enterprises are victimized; hence negatively influenced Taiwan's future economic development. Presently, I hope to enter
    LL.M. program in the US, a highly effective financial market with advance legal environment to support it. With the knowledge
    received in the LL.M. program, I plan to help create new financial instruments and establish a legal environment in good conditions
    to improve efficiency, lessen risks in our capitalist market and improved Taiwan's financial international competitiveness.

    I have been involved in Taiwan's futures industry from the its beginning. During this four years, I have been involved in the
    establishment of various related regulations and legal statues. I find that the US has the most developed and advanced
    financial market and related legal structure and to date, Taiwan still borrows most of its legal procedures from the U.S.
    As a result, I hope to study various courses necessary for building Taiwan's future financial market, such as corporate law,
    security and futures, management of capitalist market, merge, tax law, negotiation and international economics. I hope to
    gained a more complete understanding to related legal structure, in order to elevate my ability to help strengthen Taiwan's
    international financial market and overcome any obstacles we may encounter. Upon finishing LL.M. program, I plan to take
    employment at government agency to be in charge of policy making and legislation, particularly in the area of globalizing
    and enhancing our capitalist market. In addition, I plan to become a professor at university to introduce fundamental knowledge
    and pass on information to students.
