HALS LinkedIn Group
HALS alumni have a variety of exciting and successful careers, and they can be found all over the world in private practice, business, public interest, and academia. This LinkedIn group aims to foster the development of a robust and wide-reaching community network of HALS alumni who work in East Asia or have cross-border professional ties to the area.

The group is open to current and former members of HALS and others in the Harvard Law School community, with the exception of first-year JD students.
