LL.M. Lunch & Learn Series

Each year the Master of Laws (LL.M.) in American Law program brings a new group of diverse, distinguished law students and attorneys from around the world to Wake Forest Law. While they are here to learn about the American law system, the university in exchange learns a great deal about their various legal systems and cultures. To cultivate this cultural exchange, the law school’s International Programs department organizes a series of “LL.M. Lunch & Learn” presentations where LL.M. students speak about various legal issues in their home countries.
