Members of the 2016 LLM class at a North Carolina Bar Association event
Members of the 2016 LLM class enjoyed a reception at the North Carolina Bar Association's Bar Center in the Research Triangle Park. Hosted by the International Law and Practice Section of the North Carolina Bar Association, LLM students met partners in law firms and general counsel from publicly-held companies who practice in several areas of international law. They discussed international arbitration, import/export, energy, and immigration law, among other topics, in an informal setting. They also experienced the friendliness of North Carolinians, including receiving invitations to dinners at the lawyers' homes.
