"The Duke-Geneva Institute provides interesting courses and the opportunity to meet and interact with students from all over the world. Visits to various international organizations, as well as speakers at the afternoon seminars, broadened my perspective towards international business and non-profit activities in many ways. Attending the Institute immediately prior to starting the LL.M. program at Duke helped me adapt to the American law school education system. I gained a better understanding of a typical work load and how classes are carried out (i.e., active student participation)."
