Shanghai is the most energetic and fashionable city in the world!

3. When you are not at the Law School, how do you like to spend your time?
Dancing as a member of Chinese Jasmine Dancing Team and learning some traditional Chinese dances. Swimming in the Wilson Center. Traveling to all of the famous places in America -- as many as I can.

  • Community Enterprise Clinic handles legal details of shopping center transformation

    A forlorn, largely vacant shopping center on 10 acres of asphalt in central Durham seems like an unlikely place for innovation. But Ann Woodward, executive director of the nonprofit Scrap Exchange, imagines transforming this site into a creative reuse arts district (the “RAD”).  This district, an inventive mix of nonprofits, cooperatives and for-profit companies, would not only ensure that the Lakewood Shopping Center becomes a profitable asset, but would also be the catalyst for the revitalization of the surrounding neighborhood.
