ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE ADMITS MORE STUDENTS
The LL.M. Admissions Committee met last week and admitted more students to next year's class. So far, the Committee has admitted fifteen full-time and four part-time students for next year. These are not the final enrollment figures as some accepted applicants may not enroll and the Committee is still considering applicants, but this should reflect the core of next year's class. The admitted applicants are diverse internationally, with people from Chile, China, Israel, Korea, Lebanon, Peru, Singapore, and Sweden; several of the admittees are Fulbright scholars. The American students have diverse experience in a range of substantive areas including business, labor, tort, government, social welfare, and family law, among others. We welcome new admittees to our e-newsletter community.
