November 19, 2009: Career Seminar at NYU

On November 19, 2009, CBLA and the NYU Asia Law Society co-sponsored a seminar at NYU Law School on the practice of law in and related to Asia. The panelists included Toby Myerson (Partner and Co-Head of Mergers & Acquisitions, Paul Weiss), Jonathan Pan (Managing Partner, New York Office of King & Wood), Puneet Arora (Principal/Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers), Evan Jowers (Kinney Recruiting; Author of the Asia Chronicles at
AboveTheLaw.com) and CBLA’s own Nan-I Chen (Counsel, Barclays Capital) and Alex Yong Hao (Senior Associate, Vinson & Elkins). The panel was moderated by Alex Heckscher, President of the NYU Asia Law Society and CBLA’s VP for Law Schools.
The panelists shared with the audience (which consisted of mostly law firm associates and law students) their perspectives on how to develop a
successful legal career in Asia and in the U.S.
Based on the tremendous positive feedback from the audience, CBLA intends to organize additional career related events in the future.
