Dudek7Mitch Dudek, JD ’89 and Ohio native, is a partner in a well-known international law firm and owns Liu Yue, a Chinese antique museum in Lili, a city outside of Suzhou.

Dudek was one of the first students to study in China in the early 1980s. During his time in China, he developed a deep appreciation for Chinese art and was attracted by its intricacies and craftsmanship.

After returning to the United States and earning his JD degree at Ohio State, Dudek traveled back to China where he has lived and worked for 30 years.
