Henrique Carvalho Studying 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.

Additionally, by learning from countries in different cultures, law in different legal systems, and people in different backgrounds, it broadened our views, enriched our experience and helped us adapted to the trend of the economic globalization.
