By: Dr. Klemens Leopold Keferboeck (LLM, ’01)I joined the LL.M. program at WFU School of Law for the academic year 2000-2001. It was a great time, I met interesting people and learned a lot. First, of course, I got a better understanding of U.S. (common) law and learned to see the different perspective lawyers have in such a jurisdiction. Second, my English got much better. And then it was also a cultural experience I would not like to miss. All of these things helped me a lot in my further professional career.
Some of the things which attracted me most to the WFU Law LL.M. program were the very small classes and that we LL.M. students were to a big extent a part of the regular JD classes. Further, as a graduate from an Austrian law school with more than 10,000 students, I was really surprised that at WFU you received real personal contact with your professors.
I am very much looking forward to come back to Winston Salem this fall for the alumni reunion.
Dr. Klemens Leopold Keferboeck graduated with his Master of Laws (LL.M.) in American Law in 2001 from WFU School of Law. He is currently living in Austria with his wife and daughter. He is an Associate General Counsel at MAGNA STEYR Fahrzeugtechnik.
