Of all my experiences living, working, and studying in China, my most useful (and most enjoyable) was the time I spent studying at Tsinghua Law School in Beijing, regarded as one of the top universities in China. (Hu Jintao and Xi Jinping are fellow alums!) The LLM program covered all aspects of Chinese law, from corporate to criminal, civil procedure to contracts. I continue to draw upon my Tsinghua education in my practice today, particularly in how to interpret and research Chinese law.
This week, I am proud to return to Tsinghua to share about my practice with the current LLM students. As a student, I remember being uncertain how I could use my China law education. I hope my experience gives the students an idea of the possibilities that exist in today's market, from securities litigation to products liability, discovery disputes to anti-corruption compliance. There's so many opportunities for attorneys to assist businesses as they establish and grow their operations in China.
