A highlight of every new school year is acquainting students with opportunities in international, comparative, and transnational law. An early chance came yesterday, when well over a hundred members of the Georgia Law community networked at a mixer cosponsored by our student organization, the Georgia Society of International & Comparative Law, and our Dean Rusk International Law Center, which will celebrate its 38th birthday with a major event next month.
► Thanked the Center’s Fall 2015 Student Ambassadors, Taryn L. Arbeiter, Chanel Chauvet, Jennifer J. Cross, Ruibo Dong, Pedro Dorado (our Dean Rusk International Law Center Fellow), Ashley Ferrelli, Danielle Glover, Deborah Nogueira-Yates, Kevin Parker, Alyssa A. Pickett, Eric A. Sterling, Ximena Vasquez, Bo Uuganbayar, and Sarah Willis; international law experts like Professor Harlan Cohen; our staffers, Laura Tate Kagel and Kiz Adams, respectively, the Center’s Director and Associate Director of International Professional Education; and Lisa Mathis, events coordinator extraordinaire;
► Invited all in attendance to visit the Louis B. Sohn Library on International Relations and to explore Georgia Law’s many Global Practice Preparation offerings (including our new Atlanta Semester in Practice and its older sibling, our D.C. Semester in Practice, as well as courses, the Georgia Journal of International & Comparative Law, Jessup and Vis teams, Global Externships, Brussels and Oxford study abroad);
► Urged everyone to follow us on Twitter (@DeanRuskIntLaw), LinkedIn, and Facebook;
► Looked forward to a year of exciting events. Stay tuned!
