Warner Norcross Attorney Publishes Book on U.S. Legal Studies for Foreign Lawyers

Albert Vincent Y. Yu Chang, an attorney with the law firm Warner Norcross & Judd LLP, has published a book, The Unofficial Guide to U.S. Legal Studies for Foreign Lawyers.

The book, published by the American Bar Association, presents information on and insights into various aspects of a foreign lawyer’s pursuit of U.S. legal studies, including the myriad of academic programs at U.S. law schools, the application process, the law school experience, U.S. bar exams, career planning and related issues.

Yu Chang drew heavily from own experiences as an international law student at a U.S. law school and as a law practitioner who regularly works with foreign lawyers in representing American and foreign clients in relation to international business transactions.  An afterword in the book written by Yu Chang offers a glimpse into his life and career as an attorney in Michigan.

Yu Chang conceptualized this book with co-editor Johana Mantilla Gomez of Colombia on the belief that U.S. law schools positively impact the international community by contributing to the education of foreign attorneys.

Yu Chang is a member of Warner’s Business and International Business practice groups.  He has written and co-authored several other works previously, including A Legal Guide to Doing Business in the Asia-Pacific, also published by the American Bar Association in 2010.   He earned his second doctor of juris prudence from Northwestern University School of Law in Chicago.
