  In the beginning, the host introduced the program, which was the first platform of China legal media public service. With the aim of assisting people to solve legal problems happened in daily life, the program worked hard to pass on the concept of rule of law and positive energy.
         
  The topic "Campus Loan" was introduced by playing "The secret behind entry loan", which had been played by previously. Lawyer Feng and lawyer Wang defined "Campus Loan" and pointed out that internal students would always confront the lure of various loans such as "Cosmetology Loan", "Renting Loan", "Class Skipping Loan", "Entry Loan" and so on in daily life. Lawyer Wang gave an example concerning the "Class Skipping Loan" in an English training institution and in light of which, the host also shared his experience in the English training institution and showed some representative traps in such loans. Then, lawyer Wang mentioned that campus loan might lead to some serious results including bad personal credit record, even was considered as a deadbeat. According to lawyer Feng, China had rectified campus loan since 2016 but they did not disappear totally and were still tempting those college students who had a high desire to consume but did not have the money resource.
         
  After the fantastic discussion around campus loan, the host Tu Hua prompted to a new topic: The speech and behavior of young people in the Internet age. Lawyer Feng, who had rich experience of working for We Media, revealed the existing problems through practical cases. He pointed out that some netizens would be too irrational to think about problems thoroughly and never considered the reality of issues when faced with a social hot spot. First, he looked back on the case about a pregnant woman jumps off a building happened last year in the city of Yulin, Shanxi Province. Then, he mentioned the case about a bus fell into the river happened not long ago in Chongqing and the murder case in Kunshan, through which he emphasized the hysteresis of certain media to objective fact and the craze of netizens. He asserted that saying something online should be controlled in a boundary despite freedom of expression and people should be responsible for the damage caused by their improper speeches. Besides, taking the female doctor who committed suicide due to Internet violence as the breakthrough point, lawyer Wang pointed out the substantial harm to the party. She also emphasized that the current  <Criminal Law of the People's Republic of China>, <Law of the People's Republic of China on the Protection of Heroes and Martyrs>, <Counterterrorism Law of the People's Republic of China> and other relevant law had regulated improper speeches. Finally, the host summarized that the youth in the new era should comply with social rules. They could express their opinions when confronting social hot spots but the prerequisite was that it would not bring harm to others. In this respect, students majored in law were supposed to be more rational.
         
  Having discussed the boundary of expression of the youth, the topic turned to a more relaxing one: the sharing of life experience. The host invited two lawyers to share their occupation choice and the feeling gained from work. Born in a law family, lawyer Wang, whose father was a judge and sister was a former lawyer, had been a judge for three years after graduation and then worked as a lawyer for ten years until today. She was enthusiastic about being a lawyer and always offered legal aid to vulnerable groups. Fairness, justice and conscience were her ideal. Same as lawyer Wang, lawyer Feng did not work as a lawyer in the beginning, but also took a great duty and was responsible for the partys life. Although the first several years of being a lawyer were hard, to some extent, he believed that people chose such a career would rise abruptly based on his accumulated strength and one would definitely gain achievement as long as he worked hard.
         
  After the discussion, present students raised many questions to two lawyers. Some asked whether a shy person was fit to be a lawyer and lawyer Feng pointed out that both outgoing people and shy ones had their advantages and the shy ones might be more suitable to do non-litigation business. Some talked about their confusion about professional ethics of lawyers. In response, lawyer Wang said one engaging in the legal profession must not against his conscience and should abide by fairness and justice.
         
  Finally, the secretary Xiao Jing made a summary. She encouraged us to think about problems as a law learner and discuss from a higher level, in order to propose more constructive opinions. We should not only notice the contradiction and controversies of the society, but pay attention to its positive side. We should always be thankful and hold firm beliefs and ideals. Making contributions to the society, having a "big picture" in the mind and pursuing a higher ideal with humanistic care were the requirements for us to be a legal person who promoted the rule of law in China. The activity ended in warm applause.
