Yanbai Andrea Wang

Assistant Professor of Law

Yanbai Andrea Wang researches and teaches in the fields of civil procedure and transnational litigation, with a focus on the relationship between U.S. and Chinese courts.

Her current research examines the enforcement of foreign judgments, foreign law in U.S. courts, and procedural coordination across borders. She empirically maps the topography of transnational litigation, investigates the role of China and the U.S. in the international legal order, and analyzes downstream impacts on private actors structuring their cross-border relations. Her recent work, Exporting American Discovery in the University of Chicago Law Review, won the American Society of International Law David D. Caron Prize. She is a Chinese-born Canadian and is fluent in Mandarin.

Before joining the Penn Law faculty, she was a Thomas C. Grey Fellow at Stanford Law School. She previously clerked for M. Margaret McKeown on the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and practiced in the litigation groups of Latham & Watkins LLP and Vinson & Elkins LLP. She holds a PhD in International Relations from the University of Oxford, a JD from Stanford Law School, and a BA in Molecular Biology from Princeton University.
