When Yucheng Wang came to the U.S. from China as an exchange student in high school, she loved her time in America so much that she decided to pursue an undergraduate degree in sociology. She was not sure about her career choices after college. After receiving an invite to a pre-law event, she decided to check it out. “They decorated the stage with a judge’s bench, and it all looked so real, I got goosebumps.” she recalls. Then, she attended a pre-law exchange program at Oxford University in U.K. in 2013. After a summer at Oxford, she vowed for her commitment to the law. That was the turning point for Yucheng, who dove right into law and hasn’t looked back since. “I knew there was no other path for me.”
During law school, Yucheng was elected as a staff editor of the UIC John Marshall Law Review and her independent research article in IP law was published in 2018. To develop her litigation skills, Yucheng completed a clerking externship with the circuit court of Illinois and volunteered as a Moot Court counsel. After graduating with honors, Yucheng focuses her practice on civil litigation, as well as business transactional matters and some business immigration. She assisted foreign invested U.S. businesses to resolve legal disputes in contracts, corporate internal affairs, and real estate matters in varies dispute resolution forum. She represents domestic air carriers and insurers in a broad spectrum of litigated matters. In her spare time, Yucheng offers legal advice on U.S. laws to a Chinese company that has business relationships with several U.S. companies.
Being able to speak a second language and understand different cultures, Yucheng is always ready to help another foreign client that needs her legal advice. “I can understand their language and ideologies while being able to explain the American legal system,” she says. “I especially like researching precedents and legal guidelines so that I can apply the law to my clients’ cases.” Yucheng enjoys the challenges from legal practices, and she hopes to establish her own practice in the U.S. one day to assist clients in the corporate and litigation field.
