"The LLM program at McGeorge was an amazing experience. Despite the fact that I met highly intelligent people that helped me to figure out my future way and still remain my friends, the LLM program also provided me with huge amount of knowledge, that I wouldn’t find otherwise. Now I’m finishing my PhD degree, which wouldn’t be done without all the great experience, and work as a mediator, using the remarkable experience I have acquired at McGeorge. I am a supervisor of a mediation center at my university, so I made and currently managing the website, where our clients can find all the necessary information about Advanced Dispute Resolution and download documents." — Margarita Vladimirova, ’12, Ph.D. Student at the Samara State University of Economics – Mediator
