Agustina Figueroa Imfeld is an attorney from Argentina, who is currently enrolled in her second semester of her Master of Laws program at the University of Georgia School of Law. Before moving to the United States, she worked in complex litigation in the media and telecommunications industry of her home country.
Ms. Figueroa Imfeld, you are currently pursuing your LL.M. with a concentration in Business Law at the University of Georgia School of Law. What were your main reasons for choosing this major and UGA?
I picked the Business Law concentration because it aligned closely with my interests and experience working as a lawyer in the private sector. However, the curriculum is fairly flexible, and a student has broad discretion to discuss with the academic advisor what the best course of study is for each individual case.
There were many factors that contributed to my decision to select UGA. The main reason was the individualized touch and the personal correspondence from the recruiting team. Other factors that weighed in were the opportunity to work as an assistant to a faculty member, the bar track preparation, the reputation of the school in the region, being close to an important city like Atlanta, and the COVID-19 related measures the school was taking prior to our arrival.
