Lua K. Yuille joined the KU Law faculty in August 2013. Prior to her arrival, she was a William H. Hastie Fellow at the University of Wisconsin School of Law and acted as visiting professor at the University of Oregon School of Law. Before entering academia, Professor Yuille was an associate at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP in New York, where she developed a diverse generalist practice that emphasized Latin American corporate matters and domestic mergers and acquisitions, capital markets and securities transactions. She also maintained a robust pro bono immigration litigation practice.

Professor Yuille received her J.D. from Columbia University School of Law, where she was one of two undergraduate students in the nation chosen to begin law school in the Advanced Interdisciplinary Legal Education (A.I.L.E.) Program. She earned an undergraduate degree, with honors, from The Johns Hopkins University and a graduate diploma in international studies from the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS), Bologna Center. After law school she also served as a law clerk for Judge Dorothy W.
