Second-year law student Lin-Sun was recently awarded a scholarship by the Washington Chapter of the American Association of Corporate Counsel.
Originally from Wuhan, China, Lin hopes to someday work as an international business transaction attorney. As an undergraduate, she studied political science at China’s Wuhan University.
Lin has been interested in business and corporate law for most of the past decade. Her interest was formed when China entered the World Trade Organization (WTO) in 2001.
“Although China has implemented the policy of reform and has been opening up for more than 20 years, I believe the WTO will have significant and far-reaching influence not only on the Chinese economy, but on politics, the rule of law and the culture,” she said.
“I believe now there is a huge opportunity for anyone who is able to build a bridge between China and the world.”
Lin chose Gonzaga for its strong writing program and its reputation for offering an education based on humanistic and Jesuit values. Lin is the first Chinese student to be enrolled full-time at Gonzaga Law in pursuit of a J.D. degree.
