LLM Class of 2015: A Diverse, dynamic group!

The LLM Class of 2015 is comprised of two cohorts of students. The first cohort joined us in May of 2014 and the second cohort joined us in August. There are thirty-six degree seeking LLM students as well as two visiting students: there are twenty women and sixteen men enrolled in the program. They are natives of twenty countries on five continents. Nine students are US permanent residents and three are US citizens. They speak at least sixteen different languages. Some are very young; the others remember what it was like to be young! Most have substantial experience in- and outside- the legal field, including experience in engineering, the US Navy, an owner of a toy company, general practice, family law, medical malpractice, health law, human rights (two students have work experience with the United Nations and UNICEF), labor law, and immigrants' rights. Twenty-three are enrolled in the general LLM program, one is enrolled in the LLM & MA-SID dual degree program, three are enrolled in the LLM with a concentration in Health Policy & Law, five are pursuing the LLM with a concentration in Human Rights, and four are enrolled in the LLM with a concentration in Law and Economic Development. Many of the students are looking to qualify to take a US bar exam.
