"Before arriving at Moritz I had already decided that I wanted to work in international law. In my 2L year, I took four international law classes and found them to be extremely useful and quite relevant in terms of the kind of work that I wanted to pursue after graduation. Two of the classes, International Business Transactions and International Intellectual Property, were taught by Professor Chow. The remaining two classes were both week-long courses taught by visiting practitioners as part of the Distinguished Practitioners in Residence Program in Business Law.
After my 2L year, I landed a position with an Australian law firm, working in their Ho Chi Minh City office in Vietnam. The knowledge that I gained in my international law classes proved invaluable.
After law school I hope to return to Asia and work as a corporate attorney for one of the many corporate law firms in the region. I'm confident that with the knowledge and experience I've gained at Moritz that I will achieve my goals."
