While Lidong Pan, LLM ’04, was studying law at Sun Yat-Sen University, the dean of the law school, Yao Huang, talked about Washington University as a great option for getting further education in the U.S. Intrigued, Pan decided to pursue his LLM.
“I was very interested in this program as it often provides students with the opportunity of internships and exchange programs in U.S. circuit court and in some local law firms,” he says.
While at Washington University, Pan became familiar with America’s legal culture and common law. He passed the New York Bar, held an internship in the U.S. Circuit court, worked at a firm in Los Angeles and expanded his legal network.
