What I Did Before Law School:
Before coming to Penn Law, I worked as an “in house” counsel for Pan American Energy LLC, Argentina’s second largest oil and gas producer, where I counseled in areas such as Contracts, Corporate law, Administrative Law, Environmental Law and Hydrocarbons legal framework.
Why I Chose Penn Law:
Because of the business concentration of its courses, added to its status of “Ivy League” top ranked school.
My Best Experience at Penn Law:
Everything, since the first day of the Summer Program.
Professor Who Influenced Me Most:
Professor Jody Kraus because of the way he approaches to the students, making them spend a good time in class, and his use of economic theory to explain its different effects over contracts theory.
My Favorite Course:
Contracts, I really enjoyed the Socratic method and the content of the course.
My Favorite Philadelphia Moment:
Walking around University City during the sunny fall days.
What I’m Most Proud Of:
Being open to ways to improve and thrive in life. That is what pushed me into the LLM, an experience that has exceeded my expectations.
My Extracurricular Activities at Penn Law:
The International Students Advisory Board, where I was a member of the Finance Subcommittee.
My Favorite Place or Activity on the University Campus:
Penn Park, I really enjoy the Friday afternoon soccer sessions with my LLM classmates.
