Xinyu Huang is a J.S.D. candidate at Yale Law School, where she earned her LL.M. degree in 2018. Before coming to New Haven in 2017, she completed her LL.B. program in 2013 and received her first LL.M. degree in 2015, both at Sun Yat-sen University. In 2015, Xinyu became a Ph.D. candidate at Fudan University, where she once served as a student editor of Fudan Law Review.
Xinyu’s academic interests include Chinese legal history, comparative law and bureaucracy. Her J.S.D. dissertation focuses the development of supervisory agents in eighteenth-century China and France, aiming to examine how the trade-off between the pursuit of administrative efficiency and the principle-agent problem shaped the supervisory agent in premodern society.
