Mr. Wang graduated from the Japanese College of Law at Tokyo.
While in Japan, Yung-ping Wang became a follower of Dr. Sun Yat-sen and joined the Tungminghui, predecessor of Kuomintang. Then he returned to China in the summer of 1911 and planned revolutionary work in North China. He founded the Ching Yang Press (still in existence) at Taiyuan and wrote articles advocating revolution which aroused the ire of the Manchu officials in Shansi and resulted in the sealing of his paper and the issuance of an order for his arrest. Upon the outbreak of the First Revolution in Wuchang, to which Shansi responded, he was proclaimed Military Governor of Ho-Tung district in Shansi and was later appointed Commissioner of Civil Affairs.
Upon establishment of the Republic, Mr. Wang was elected Speaker of the Provincial Assembly of Shansi. In 1918, he was elected member of the Senate of the Peking Parliament and concurrently member of the constitution drafting committee of the Senate. Following the second dissolution of the Parliament, he went to Canton where he was appointed member of the Parliament for the Defense of Provisional Constitution and concurrently councillor of the Generalissimo's Headquarters. In 1921, he was sent by Dr. Sun to North China to induce Tuan Chi-jui and Chang Tso-lin to support the Revolution which was known as the "Triple Alliance". Vigorously Yung-ping Wang was opposed the election of Tsao Knn to Presidency by bribery in 1928. He served in the Kuominchun Army under command of Feng Yu-hsiang in 1924, chief-secretary to the Civil Governor of Honan in 1926, high councillor to the Southern Route Army of the Kuominchun under Gen. Yuen Wei-chun in 1928 and in the winter of the same year, chief secretary of the Peiping Division of the Central Political Council, member of the Legislative Yuan in 1928, in which capacity he also served concurrently as chairman of the Law Codification Commission, Chairman of the Examination Commission of the Examination Yuan in 1929-1934 and Minister of Justice since 1934.
