The Harvard Asia Law Society (“HALS”) is a prominent, student-run organization at Harvard Law School that brings together students, faculty, and outside parties who have an interest in law, politics, or business in Asia. HALS is diverse and international, with past and current members from East Asia, South Asia, North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and beyond. Our ranks include native and fluent speakers of a wide array of Asian languages, and many of us aspire to use our language skills and international experiences in future employment.
We sponsor activities on campus that strive to educate and provide hands-on experiences with regard to the legal, political, and business issues that arise across Asia. We also seek to provide opportunities for our members to meet representatives of law firms with Asia practices. Our activities for the 2015–2016 academic year included a delegation trip to China, career panels, the Asia Career Fair at Harvard Law School, several academic lectures, and the Asia Business Conference at Harvard Business School—the most prominent and largest student-run Asia law and business conference in North America. We hope to meet, if not exceed, that level of activity for the 2016–2017 academic year.
We hope you will take time to explore our website and consider joining us for the many exciting events that we have planned for this year!
