This is my first blog entry, so allow me to introduce myself: My name is Christian Fuehner and I graduated from the LL.M program in 2010. After interning at the EU Delegation to the US in Washington D.C., I returned to my native Germany and I am currently working for the law firm of Hengeler Mueller in Berlin. My year at Wake Forest was one of the best experiences of my life, both from a professional and from a social standpoint.

As you can probably guess from the video, sports are an important element in the Wake community. I can highly recommend going to the basketball (usually a very good team) and football (mostly mediocre) games. If you want to participate in sports yourself, Wake intramural sports are the way to go. There are tournaments in almost every sport you can think of, running during the whole academic year. The tournaments last for 8 weeks each, so you can play in up to 4 leagues a year. If you need a team to play with, the Intramural office can assist you in finding teammates.
