LLM Class Profile
LLM Class of 2016: A Diverse, dynamic group!
The LLM Class of 2016 is comprised of two cohorts of students. The first cohort joined us in May of 2015 and the second cohort joined us in August. There are forty degree seeking LLM students as well as two visiting students: there are twenty-six women and fourteen men enrolled in the program. They are natives of twenty countries on five continents. 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 the US Army, an owner of a transportation company, a founder of a human rights orgranization in Africa, general practice, family law, health law, labor law, and immigrants' rights. Twenty-seven are enrolled in the general LLM program, four are enrolled in the LLM with a concentration in Health Policy & Law, six are pursuing the LLM with a concentration in Human Rights, and three are enrolled in the LLM with a concentration in International Business Law. Many of the students are looking to qualify to take a US bar exam.
