PROFILE

Jian has a degree in law from the University of British Columbia. At law school, he worked as a research assistant in the Faculty of Law and at the UBC Indigenous Community Legal Clinic. Jian was mentored under the guidance of the Legal Director of the Clinic, Alex Wolf (as he then was), who described Jian as diligent, having “the making of a great lawyer”, an “impressive writer” with “extremely well developed analytical skills”, and someone who can “stay calm with a sense of humour.”

Jian is developing a reputation in both English and Mandarin speaking legal circles for his work in family law and personal injury law.

Prior to pursuing a career in law, Jian obtained a Master of Science from the University of Victoria. He enjoys time with his wife, working on his fantasy math book for elementary students and young adults, sketching, painting and watching soccer and hockey.
