Program Expands College's International Reach

Jessica Dworkin

Jessica Dworkin

Now in its fourth year, Moritz’s LL.M. program is continuing to grow. This year we welcomed 17 foreign-trained lawyers to our program – our largest class to date! Our LL.M. students represent thirteen countries: Cameroon, China, Egypt, Ghana, Iceland, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Russia, Rwanda, Somalia, South Africa, and Sudan. Our LL.M. students bring with them significant experience after graduating from their home law schools and before joining Moritz. We have among our class a Fulbright Scholar, Muskie Fellow, and two Jones Day Scholars.

These LL.M. students are not only expanding their own legal knowledge and skills, but they are also contributing to the academic life of Moritz as a whole. They are taking classes alongside their J.D. counterparts, contributing to class discussions, and sharing their perspectives, backgrounds, and ideas.

In addition to increasing LL.M. student enrollment, we are continuing our recruiting efforts. In the past 12 months I have travelled to: Mexico City, Mexico; Riyadh and Jeddah, Saudi Arabia; Prague, Czech Republic; and Pretoria and Johannesburg, South Africa. I expect to return to Saudi Arabia this spring as well as travel to Qatar.

Moritz is poised to take advantage of expanding international student enrollments, and the LL.M. program is introducing the College to a new audience. If you are going to be travelling abroad, have contacts from the Moritz family overseas, or have ideas related to the LL.M. program, we’d love to hear from you.

Sincerely,

Jessica Richman Dworkin, Assistant Dean for International and Graduate Programs
