LL.M. Advisory Council

Overview

In the fall of 2007, the Moritz International and Graduate Affairs office created the LL.M. Advisory Council in order to foster involvement by and garner advice from attorneys with experience in international law. The members of the Council:

  • Serve as global ambassadors for Moritz – promoting its graduate law degrees (LL.M. & M.S.L.), Visiting Scholar opportunities and study abroad programs to prospective students, professors, institutions and distinguished practitioners;
  • Participate in mentoring, networking and career development programs that are aimed at supporting students’ professional growth; and
  • Share information with Moritz’s LL.M. administration team that may help students learn about and prepare for law-related internships and post-graduate job opportunities.

Structure

The Moritz LL.M. Advisory Council is comprised of 15 to 30 professionals who possess extensive experience in international law and global affairs. Several members are also alumni of The Ohio State University. A four-person Executive Committee provides leadership over the Council’s objectives.

Council meetings are held two to three times per year and are accessible through teleconference technology to support long-distance and international participation.

The term of service is one year and runs from August – July.
