Henrique CarvalhoStudying at the Levin College of Law is a remarkable experience. The Comparative Law program gives me the perfect academic environment to develop my educational and professional skills. Considering the law school, its professors and even the city of Gainesville, I am sure that this is the best choice among top American LL.M. programs.
