Australian Students Completed a 2-week Program at FIU Law

A group of law students from Victoria University (Australia) just completed a 2-week long summer program at FIU Law. The program “Law and Dispute Resolution in the United States of America” featured lectures and other activities related to constitutional law, torts, civil litigation, international arbitration, mediation, and art and the law. The program included a 2-day mediation workshop led by Prof. Phyllis Kotey, a constitutional law lecture by Honorable Thomas Logue (3rd DCA), panel discussions by prominent practitioners, a guided visit to the American Arbitration Association, a luncheon and presentation at the downtown firm Hogan Lovells, and a visit to the Wolfsonian Museum capped with a presentation on art related disputes by expert Clarissa Rodriguez. The Australian students also had an opportunity to attend a class at FIU Law and interact with their U.S. counterparts who in turn were able to learn from the valuable experience. International Programs Manager Gilberto Guerrero-Rocca was in charge of the academic coordination of this program, which is part of an effort to internationalize the law school toward the Asia-Pacific region.
