Meetings with FGV’s Law Schools in Rio and São Paulo

Christiana OchoaAt his stops in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, President McRobbie met with officials from the Fundação Getulio Vargas (FGV) Schools of Law. Faculty members from the IU Maurer School of Law have been working closely with their colleagues at FGV for more than a year, and the schools will soon finalize an agreement for faculty exchanges. IU Professor Christiana Ochoa (right), whose research focuses on human rights law, has led the efforts to establish this institutional relationship.

FGV is a private higher education system with the best business schools in Latin America. In 2005, the institution opened new law schools in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, and both schools are already considered to be among the best in Latin America because of the research productivity and teaching caliber of the faculty.
