Yale Law School and University of California, Berkeley
Lawrence Liu is a joint JD/PhD student at Yale Law School and the Jurisprudence and Social Policy Program at the University of California, Berkeley. Most generally, Lawrence is interested in the ways in which “law” can legitimize and challenge governance efforts in non-democratic states. With interdisciplinary training in law, political science, and sociology, Lawrence has research interests in law and globalization, the legal profession, judicial politics, and state-society relations, with a specific emphasis on Chinese law and legal institutions. He also has growing doctrinal interests in property and investment and trade law. Lawrence is originally from Plano, Texas and graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Magna Cum Laude from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University. He also holds an MA in Jurisprudence and Social Policy from UC Berkeley.
