UCLA Law welcomes LL.M. students

A director of the BBC's show, "Dr. Who." An JAG in the U.S. Army. Three Fulbright scholars.

What do they have in common?

They're all part of this year's UCLA Law's LL.M. class. 

Per ususal, they're slackers. (Oh we joke ...) 

Lawyers in the one-year LL.M. program come from 35 countries, including China, France, Spain, Israel, Japan and Colombia.

At UCLA Law, 47 percent of the LL.M. students plan to specialize in business law; 33 percent will study media, entertainment and technology law; and others will focus on public interest, critical race studies, environmental law, human rights, law and philosophy, law and sexuality, and individualized programs of study.

One student from South Africa is a Health and Human Rights fellow who will study public interest law, and two lawyers, from Brazil and the United States, will specialize in critical race studies.

The LL.M. students have worked as attorneys at Baker McKenzie, Morrison & Foerster, Sony, Bayer and J.P. Morgan. Others gained experience in the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Colombia’s Land Restitution Unit, and South Africa’s National Film and Video Foundation.

They have held key government or judicial posts in Germany, South Korea and Switzerland.
