Xiu-Fang Chen is also known as Sue Chen or Sue Chen Carroll. Having earned a Bachelor of Arts from Tianjin Normal University in China, Ms. Chen was among the group of students who came to study in the United States soon after China adopted the open-door policy. She received a Master of Arts in English literature from Temple University and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Maryland. Ms. Chen was admitted to practice law by the Maryland State Bar Association in 1995. While still in law school, Ms. Chen worked as a law clerk at the Federal Bureau of Prisons, and simultaneously worked as a legal intern in the corporate law department of Piper & Marbury in Washington, D.C.
