1. How did you hear about TU College of Law?
I heard about TU through a relative who lived in Tulsa. He suggested it to me when he knew that I was searching for a good school to pursue my education. He said that TU has the best reputation.
2. Why did you decide to come to TU College of Law for your LLM?
After my relative recommended TU to me, I checked the university website. I admired the school’s academic programs, the different activities that take place on campus, the variety in the students’ nationalities attending the school and the most important that the university ranks high between the educational institutes in United States. Then when I started to contact the College of Law, I was so impressed with the fast answer and the friendly response.
3. What are some of the major differences of studying law in the US versus in your country?
The major difference that I admire is that the Academic strategy puts you to work since the very beginning, with different assignments, research and the different ways to make students involved in the practical life by encouraging the student to visit the court house and review real cases.
4. What classes are you taking? How do they compare to your legal education experience back home?
I’m taking for this semester: 1-Introduction to American Law; 2-Civil Procedure 1; 3- Academic Writing. Besides that the study is in English which a different than my native language and the law is different since in the United States applies the common law which is different than the civil law that is applied in most of the world.
5. What are your professional aspirations once you graduate?
My ambition is to specialize in international business law, and I believe that my study in the LLM program at TU will help me achieve my goal.
6. Is there anything else you want to say to prospective foreign LLMs interested in studying at The University of Tulsa College of Law?
My main advice the prospective foreign LLMs students is they should improve their English by a lot of reading.
