October 30, 2013

Hugo Wood, a Panamanian lawyer in the inaugural group of students pursuing the new LLM in Law and Development at Tulane University Law School’s Payson Center for International Development, is the first recipient of the Tulane Alumni Association of Panama Scholarship Award.

Wood is founder and first President of the NGO, Jóvenes Unidos por el Diálogo (United Youth for Dialogue), which seeks to promote solutions for domestic and global issues through the use of dialogue and alternative dispute mechanisms.

His reason for undertaking the LLM: “I would like to understand the complex relation between law and the international development challenges of our times and acquire the skills and abilities necessary to be part of the solutions to improve the state of my country and of the world.”
