Mr. Lin was also the Special Assignments Editor on the law school’s prestigious Nevada Law Journal and a member of the Society of Advocates Moot Court Team, competing in the Sutherland Cup Moot Competition, which holds the distinction of being the oldest, private moot competition in the country.

Mr. Lin is an avid animal lover, and in his personal time, he enjoys spending time with his two beautiful dogs. He also enjoys all aspects of food and dining, given his many years of working in the food and beverage industry prior to pursuing a career in law.
