China Public Interest Career Panel

Start/End Monday, November 18, 2013 07:00 PM EST -- 09:00 PM EST
Location Name JG Annex

Please join Society for Chinese Law for an evening of food, drink, and mingling with an incredibly impressive panel of China-focused public interest professionals. Panelists will discuss their current careers, the paths they took, and any advice they have for students. The event will also include a more informal opportunity for students to engage with practitioners one-on-one or in small groups. This event should be of interest to anyone trying to find a China-related summer internship or job, or for those who would simply like to learn more about public interest work in and related to China.

Panelists include:

  • Thomas Kellogg (Open Society Institute; Adjunct Professor of Law at Fordham and CLS), Yi-jen Chang (NYLAG; former CLS Haas Fellow)
  • Elisabeth Wickeri (Committee to Support Chinese Lawyers; Adjunct Professor of Law at Fordham)
  • Zhang Wenjuan (LLM candidate; Zhicheng Public Interest Lawyers)
  • Cheng Qian (PILnet Fellow; Wuhan University Public Interest and Development Law Institute)
Non-pizza dinner and wine will be served. Contact Ali Borochoff-Porte, ab2789@columbia.edu with any questions.
