Law Fellowship

Yale-China Law Fellowship

The Yale-China Law Fellowship brings talented young Chinese lawyers to the United States to intern at American legal services organizations in New York City and learn about public service law from an American perspective. Fellows also conduct independent research and meet with others in the U.S.-China law community to expand and broaden their knowledge of this sector and think about ways to translate their experiences back to their future law careers in China.

From the Field

“Working in the Lower Manhattan Justice Project enables me to understand how legal aid reaches poor people at the community level. Rooted in a long history of advocating legal rights, community organizations are more matured and are serving widely. Also, its diversity in races, languages and social problems makes it a busy area for legal service. Since I am fluent in Chinese language and familiar with the Chinese culture, taking Lower Manhattan as an example for examination would be ideal.” – Xinxin Feng, 2011 Law Fellow More >
