Accompanied by Professor Dan Hunter, Executive Dean of The Dickson Poon School of Law, staff from the Alumni Office visited Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong.

In each location, we held incredibly well-supported alumni receptions, which gave guests the chance to connect with their local alumni community and King’s staff.

Professor Hunter, an international expert in internet and intellectual property law, legal technology and innovation, and artificial intelligence and law, discussed the rise of generative AI and the need to regulate this technology to ensure human flourishing.

‘We enjoyed three excellent events, and we were delighted to have large and receptive audiences of alumni and supporters at each of them,’ says Professor Hunter. ‘It was an amazing opportunity to catch up with old friends, and make some new ones, in this region.

‘We shared the latest groundbreaking research that is ongoing at King’s and, just as importantly, the impact of alumni support that helps make this happen.’

Reconnecting with friends

Guests who enjoyed the hospitality at the Fullerton, Ritz Carlton and Conrad hotels were similarly enthusiastic.

One alum in Hong Kong commented: ‘I enjoyed Professor Hunter’s presentation. It was a great opportunity to reconnect with friends and learn more about our alumni association.’

Another added: ‘It was an educational night, not only about generative AI but also about the impact that King’s research has on the world.’

The Alumni Office is visiting the US in late April and early May. Sign up for our receptions in Boston, New York and Washington D.C. At these events, we’ll be joined by Professor Marion Thain, Executive Dean of our Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
