LLM/SJD Student Spotlight

Home Country: Taiwan

“Indiana Law has lots of excellent alumni in Taiwan. Their great performance is the best publicity for IU. Law School professors and staff visited many times, and that made IU more well-known in Taiwan. If I have the chance, without any hesitation, I would recommend that my friends or students come here for advanced study and to experience a different culture.”
