  • Study for a semester at FGV Direito Rio or FGV Direito São Paulo in Brazil, or one of our other international partner schools in Latin America during your second or third year
  • Work the summer after your first year as a global intern with a prestigious law firm or multinational company
  • Serve as a research assistant with Professor Christiana Ochoa conducting research on human rights and development in Latin America, and receiving up to $3,000 for your work

Applications are due May 15.
