Tu began his legal career as a law clerk for Judge Walter Mansfield on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and then for U.S. Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall. He later served three years in the U.S. State Department's Office of the Legal Advisor, where he was responsible for international trade and investment issues while working extensively with other government agencies, and also served as a special assistant to the State Department's Legal Advisor.
