Before joining The China Center, he worked with the New York University US-Asia Law Institute, where he played an active role in all aspects of the Institute’s China-based rule of law projects. Daum has designed, implemented, and participated in a wide variety of research and legal reform programs throughout China, particularly involving criminal procedure, death penalty cases, and international human rights standards. He graduated in the class of 2005 from Washington University in St. Louis School of Law where he was inducted into the Order of the Coif, an honors society for exceptional American law students, and is admitted to the New York State Bar. While at Washington University, he served as a staff editor on the university’s Global Studies Law Review and worked in the school’s Civil Rights and Community Justice Clinic as a victim-offender mediator in cases involving juvenile offenders. Jeremy has clerked with international law firm Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP, and has also worked on a variety of employment discrimination, prisoner rights and police abuse matters after graduation. Most recently Jeremy’s work has focused evidence rules, and particularly the exclusion of illegally acquired evidence. He published a brief article, “Tortuous Progress: Early Cases Under China’s New Procedures for Excluding Evidence in Criminal Cases,” in the NYU Journal of International Law and Politics (Vol. 43, No. 3, Spring 2011).
