Abby Jiang

Abby Jiang is a 3L at University of Washington School of Law. She was born in Wuhan, China, and attended and obtained her Bachelor of Laws from China Foreign Affairs University in Beijing. She grew fond of international law when she participated and won second place at the national level in the 2015 Red Cross International Humanitarian Law Moot Court Competition. 

Abby later studied at the University of Bergen School of Law, Norway and was fascinated by EU competition law. She also took economics and law class taught by American visiting professors. That’s when she decided to study law and pursue a J.D. degree in the U.S. Prior to her time in the US, Abby worked at the China International Economics and Trade Arbitration Committee (CIETAC) as an associate.

At the University of Washington, Abby joined the Immigration Law Clinic and had the honor to help individuals who would otherwise lack legal representation and co-wrote a report on ICE’s retaliation and surveillance on immigrant activists. She also took classes on international business responsibility and international business transactions to advance her knowledge of international law and society.
