On an annual basis, the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation recognizes some of the top JD and LLM students worldwide.
Two of the 2007-2008 award winners were students in the DU graduate program. I met with these two graduates in Buenos Aires recently.
Katia Castillo, on the left, is an assistant general counsel in the Lima, Peru, office of Minera Barrick. Ms. Castillo graduated in May 2008.
Marina Marti, on the right, is an associate with the Buenos Aires-based firm of Marval, O'Farrell & Mairal. Ms. Marti graduated in May 2008.
Katia and Marina, who became acquainted in the LLM program, are now friends and professional colleagues. Last year I was delighted to get to know both of them as students and friends. In my opinion, they are destined to become two of Latin America's most well-recognized and highly-respected natural resources law attorneys.
