Tracy Wut - Class Of '89
Janine Cheung - Class Of '92
Michelle Ng - Class Of '93


DGS has nurtured a large number of lawyers through the years. Among the Dr. Symons scholarship holders, apart from Jane Ng and Cindy Hui who are covered in separate write-ups, Tracy Wut, Janine Cheung and Michelle Ng are all practising lawyers. They met Delpha Ho of the editorial sub-committee for a quick chat after work.

Tracy Wut is an associate at the international law firm, Baker & McKenzie. She now specialises in China law practice, assisting foreign companies with their investment in the Mainland. Her practice takes her to China (in particular, Shanghai) from time to time. As China is the centre of much economic and investment activities in the recent years, her practice takes up a considerable part of her time. After she graduated from DGS, she enrolled in the Hong Kong University law school and completed her LLB and PCLL courses.


Given her existing busy work schedule, she tries hard to strike a balance between work and maintaining an active social life as a single female in Hong Kong. During her spare time, she likes to jog, sail, hike and dine and wine with friends. She is also fond of traveling --- her most recent trip was a ski trip to Hakuba, Japan at end of February 2003.

 

Janine Cheung is a barrister with Des Voeux Chambers specialising in civil litigation, and in particular banking-related matters. She is also a graduate of the University of HK where she demonstrated her budding abilities as an advocate as an active debater and mooter (mock court sessions). She represented Hong Kong at the World Debating Championships, was Best Oralist in the Philip B. Jessup Mooting Competition and won the Deacons Cup for Best Mooter at the HKU moots. Janine is also a member of the Bar Council of the HK Bar Association and Chairman of the Young Barristers' Committee. She also teaches Legal Skills at HKU as a part time lecturer. Janine is the class representative of her year and, as she says, 'with what's left of my spare time', a sporadic attendee of Old Girls' Choir practice sessions. She is 'single but contentedly so'.

Michelle Ng is a litigation solicitor at Herbert Smith (where she was a trainee as well), specialising in commercial litigation. Michelle is a HKU graduate, and like Janine, also spent the better part of her LLB days participating in mooting competitions, and followed Janine's footsteps in winning Best Mooter in the HKU compulsory moots. She also met her husband, whom she married late last year, during her university years (no regrets, she said, about her decision to forego law school at Cambridge and stay in Hong Kong!). Michelle believes that God guided her to become a litigation solicitor instead of going to the Bar, and she nurtures her faith through regular attendance at a lunchtime bible study group for lawyers. She is also a DOGA choir member and plays netball occasionally with the Alumni (although she laments at her own lack of physical fitness when compared with DGS girls from earlier far earlier years!)

 

 

Reminiscing about the time they spent in DGS, Tracy, Janine and Michelle recalled with relish games of old, "Cross Tofu"(十字ɚ豆腐) , "Touch the Yellow Poles" (掂黃柱), the thrilling game of getting to jump off the swings at the highest possible point (跳鞦), playing "10-a-side" seesaw and throwing cardigans at the back wall of the senior hall to see whose cardigan gets to stick higher up the wall. Other fond memories are the hot malt Vitasoy drinks during the winter and the smart school uniform for the upper senior school girls. Being the gregarious girls they are, they have less fond memories of the "penalties" of misbehaviour or being repeatedly late for school. Tracy, Janine and Michelle obviously started their training on dealing with rules from their time at DGS!


Tracy, Janine and Michelle all agree that DGS provided them with an all-round education, giving them both academic skills and the opportunities to hone their other skills (e.g. speech, sports) through extra-curricular activities. They also felt that generally, DGS cultivates confidence in its students and produces as its graduates forthright and driven ladies with a lot of common sense. To current students, they have the following advice:-


Tracy - "Have confidence in yourself. Don't be afraid to try out new things. You will discover that each person is gifted with her own talents, albeit how insignificant they may seem to be at first. "


Janine - "The school offers you an environment with ample opportunities waiting to be taken - you just need to take them"


Michelle - "Focus not on the negative thing; look for the positive and you will find it"
