Kardaras & Kelleher, LLP is proud to announce that on Sunday May 20, 2012 LouAnn received her LL.M. in US and Global Business Law at Suffolk University in Boston. Also receiving their LL.M. were graduating classmates from Iran, Hungary, Honduras, Mexico, Oklahoma, Saudi Arabia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Texas.
The “LL.M. in U.S. and Global Business Law” was the first degree program of its kind. The cooperation between Suffolk University Law School (SULS), Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., and Eotvos Lorand University (ELTE), Budapest, Hungary, along with the administrative support of the Center for International Legal Studies, Salzburg, Austria, (CILS) marked a ground breaking step towards the internationalization of legal education.
Her course work included 3 intensive 2 week courses at Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest and included courses such as International Project Finance, International Arbitration, Resolution of International Disputes, Global Internet and Mergers & Acquisitions.
The program was taught by law professors from Suffolk University Law School and from other U.S. law schools, with a focus on the transactional and transnational need of international business lawyers. It covered substantive law from the U.S. perspective, studied at an advanced and demanding level, and learned through the acquisition of U.S. legal skills. The program also offered additional co-teaching and lecturing by faculty from Eotvos Lorand University and other European law faculties.
LouAnn is the personification of the Firm’s philosophy of serving clients with the most up to date information available which is often achieved through continuing education. Please join all of us at Kardaras & Kelleher in offering congratulations to LouAnn on her latest accomplishment.
