Get Involved


The Paul Tsai China Center has a robust program for students at Yale Law School and encourages student involvement.  Students get involved in all aspects of the Center’s work.  They collaborate with China Center staff on a variety of legal reform and U.S.-China relations projects that the Center undertakes, often in cooperation with leading scholars, lawyers, officials, and other advocates in China.  Students can also organize events and projects on their own initiative.  Center faculty also supervise law student papers during the academic year.  Participating in Center activities is an excellent way for students to develop greater knowledge about U.S.-China relations and Chinese law and policy reforms, meet other students with interests in China, interact with a range of China experts and U.S. foreign policy experts, and develop tools for next-generation leadership.  Students also join or organize a variety of social events.    

The Center has a Student Board of Yale Law School students each year that plays a leading role in the student program.  The Paul Tsai China Center’s Student Board for the 2024–2025 academic year is:
