The National Jurist magazine, which highlights new programs and innovations in legal education, has featured Tulane Law School’s new LLM in Law and Development.
The story notes the quick successes of the first two graduates of the program: Hugo Wood Núñez recently started working as executive assistant to Panama’s new Vice President and Minister of Foreign Affairs Isabel de Saint Malo de Alvarado. During the summer, Meredith Bambrick joined Assistant Professor Nanette Svenson in Istanbul, Turkey, at a conference on global governance to present their research on the United Nations.
Here’s what The National Jurist wrote:
“Tulane Law School’s LL.M. in Law and Development is only a year old, but its graduates are already making inroads into the world of law.
"As the first program of its kind in the United States, it gives graduate students multidisciplinary training in such areas as sustainability and development, international human rights and comparative environmental law.”
