UC Davis School of Law Welcomes Outstanding LL.M. Class

UC Davis School of Law Welcomes Outstanding LL.M. Class

This fall, UC Davis School of Law welcomed its largest LL.M. class to date.  With 65 students, this year's LL.M. class is the most diverse class yet to study at King Hall. Among the LL.M. students are lawyers, judges and prosecutors from 13 countries including Argentina, Brazil, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Jose Flavio Araujo Filho (of Brazil) is studying international law and U.S. business and corporate law. "I like the challenge of being back in school and of learning in a different education system," says Filho.   Arriving at the law school to begin legal studies in another language and culture can often be a big challenge.  His LL.M. classmate, Jaemin Youn (South Korea), who is studying U.S. and international business law, joined the Big Sib Little Sib program offered through the King Hall Law Students Association, which partners JD students with LL.M. students. 
Youn loves her classes in business law and the exceptional quality of her educational experience from top scholars. "I also like my JD ‘Big Sib,' who has been meeting with me once each week. She's very helpful and has shown me many ways to become involved in the King Hall community!"
"I haven't yet decided my favorite thing about the LL.M. program here," says Evelyn (Xuanye) Wang (China). "I love that Associate Dean Greenwood helps us choose what will best improve our career and our knowledge. Academically, I have been surprised by how much the professors care about the students. They always open their office doors, and we are welcome to drop by with questions. It's great!"
Wang, who is studying intellectual property, is energized by all the extracurricular activities at the School of Law. "Last week was International Law Week, and this week is about negotiations. The Law School brings excellent guest speakers and lecturers. There are many associations students can join to become more involved."
Nyi Mas Gianti Bingah Erbiana (Indonesia), who's studying international business, investment, and corporate law, agrees with Wang that "it's not just about the academics here. It's about learning through other cultures, too. I love it that at UC Davis, the LL.M.s are integrated with the JD students. I like getting the point of view of people who are actually living in the U.S. It challenges me, since English is not my native language, but I love it. I chose to study in the U.S. because it is a place where you can freely share and discuss your ideas." 
Associate Dean Beth Greenwood is delighted to welcome this year's class. "The LL.M. program at the UC Davis School of Law continues to grow in stature and academic richness. We are thrilled to host such a diverse class of top LL.M. students for a year of intense study, and the faculty and I look forward to remaining connected to these exceptionally dedicated students long after graduation."

University of Hawaii LLM Program Commencement 2015

The University of Hawaii's LLM Program students celebrate at their Commencement Ceremony of the William S. Richardson School of Law. The University of Hawaii offers a Master of Laws (LLM) degree as well as a two-year Advanced JD Program to international students. Last fall, students from Argentina, Finland, Germany, Japan, Korea, Philippines, Saudi Arabia, and Taiwan enjoyed a two-day Legal-Ease workshop on legal English as part of their law school orientation. Taught by Ms. Dena Falken, Esq., the workshop really helped the students to learn legal vocabulary and terms that were commonly used during their study at the Law School. It was the perfect introduction to the study of law and gave the students a lot of confidence to meet the challenges of studying law in the U.S. In fact, Ms. Jeneline Nicolas, an LLM graduate from the Philippines, was selected to give the commencement speech to represent the LLM Program.

UC Davis International Law Programs/ Alumni Update

International Alumni Update: Luis Pereda, LL.M. '13, Dean, Anáhuac México Sur University

The International Law Programs at UC Davis School of Law are proud to launch this new series of brief alumni profiles highlighting the experiences of recent program graduates.

Luis Pereda
Dean of Law School, Anáhuac México Sur University
What is your favorite thing about your current work?
My favorite thing is that, every day, I have had the opportunity to rethink, teach, learn, and talk about law in an environment where young people are the most valuable asset. I am convinced that Mexico's great opportunity to fight against corruption and inequity are those men and women seeking -- through courage, ambition and social responsibility -- to become successful lawyers.
How does your UC Davis School of Law education make you a more effective professional?
One of the most important reflections I can share is the perspective I gained at UC Davis about the world and other cultures' law. Diversity is something that is frequently underestimated for those Mexicans who still don't have close contact with other cultures, traditions, and legal texts. This is where my UC Davis School of Law education makes a big difference. Thanks to my professors and classmates, I expanded my horizons to understand other countries' problems and their respective legal answers to those problems.  My UC Davis School of Law education was both high-quality and practical.
What piece of advice would you give to this year's international law students?
They should take advantage of the great resources the university offers, like the fact that professors don't only give their lectures, but also take care of the students and have a lot of contact with them.
What is your favorite UC Davis memory?
The brotherhood that we students created outside the classroom, together as one family.

The recommended deadline for application to the UC Davis LL.M. Program was January 10, but it is not too late to apply! Contact and visit for more information.
