"The Madrid program inspired me to pursue a career in international trade law. The faculty and guest speakers covered subject matter ranging from international commercial transactions to the European Union political structure and the impact of Brexit. The course material was complemented by visits to the European Union Parliament and Madrid Bar Association. Aside from the academics, I developed life-long friendships with fellow students and faculty during weekend trips, traditional Spanish lunches, and cultural events."
