Alumni from Latin America and South America
Victor Manzano: Mexico City, Mexico, LL.M., 2007
Regional Counsel for Marketing, Nokia Mexico, and Labor Affairs (Latin America)
Being part of the LL.M. program at WFU School of Law has been one of the best academic and personal experiences in my life. Besides helping me to enhance my skills and aptitudes as an attorney, it gave me the opportunity to be taught by some of the finest law professors I have ever met. In addition, I shared this wonderful time with talented students from all around the world that turned the program into a challenging though formative experience.
It is almost unnecessary to say that all the Nokia officers that interviewed me were pleased not only because I am an LL.M., but particularly because I am a WFU School of Law graduate (lots of football enthusiasts here).
Daniel Millares: Bogotá, Colombia, LL.M., 2005
Justice and Peace Director, Organization of the American States
Prior to receiving his LL.M. degree, Daniel was a Professor of Commercial Law and Human Rights at Salesian University in La Paz, Bolivia. He is currently working as a Legal Analyst for the Organization of American States’ Mission to Support the Peace Process in Colombia.
Manuel Moctezuma: Mexico City, Mexico, LL.M., 2004
Senior Associate, Gonzalez Calvillo, S.C.
Paulina and I always remember the great moments we spent at Wake. We follow Wake’s college sports and keep track of all the law school’s activities and the university’s main events. We are seriously planning to pay a visit back to Wake in the near future.
Adriana Ozorio: Rio de Janerio, Brazil, LL.M., 1998
Wake Forest’s LLM program helped me build a better understanding of the American culture and legal system. I learned that law is not static, but dynamic. The LLM legal learning process was appropriate to the American legal reality that is both very practical and dynamic. I have many good memories of my time at Wake Forest University. I do not regret one second of my life during my year with Wake Forest.
Yazmyne Vasquez Eterovic: Lima, Peru, LL.M., 2003
Assistant Director and International LL.M. and Alumni Advisor, Career Development Office, University of Miami School of Law
Studying my Master’s degree at Wake Forest University School of Law gave me not only the opportunity to expand my knowledge in American Law and to learn more about the System and the Institutions which are totally different from the ones in my country, Peru, giving me a solid base to continue with my career; but also gave me the opportunity to meet wonderful people who I will never forget, such as law professors, law students and everybody working at Wake Forest University.
