It will not improve your chances. I think that your command of the english language will also be a crucial factor.

I've been told that Stanford LL.M. is designed for people with substantial work experience. I think it would be better for you to apply, for instance, to Berkeley.

Sorry but I think you don't have a chance. Stanford receives several applications from chinese students and the program is very small.

It sounds bad .Work experience in law is the most important factor ,isn't it?

The answer is : yes !

I know an outstanding student (first in class) who has been admitted to Stanford Law School with only a three-month internship.
