We are pleased to welcome Yonghua Zhang, ELAW’s Laurie Prosser/Xiaoli Jiang Fellow.

Yonghua Zhang at UOYonghua is an environmental attorney from Shenzhen, China. He works pro bono at the Shenzhen Legal Assistance Center to clean China’s air and water, and challenge noise pollution. He received his LLM, with a focus on environmental law, from Northwest University of Political Science (Xi’an, ShaanXi Province).

Yonghua will be with us for three months. He will participate in an Intensive English Program at the University of Oregon’s American English Institute and work one-on-one with ELAW staff on marine, mining, and carbon trading issues.

This is Yonghua’s first time in the U.S. If you live in the Eugene area and are interested in helping us introduce Yonghua to American culture and the beautiful Northwest, please leave us a comment!
