Alanna Román Abreu, LLM

“With nationally recognized faculty and an extensive and innovative curriculum, UIUC provided me with the legal foundation and real-world skills I was looking for in an LLM program.

Particularly, the Chicago Program offered me the incredible opportunity to learn from several alumni and practitioners about the actual practice of law. This experience helped me enhance my problem-solving and communication skills and provided me with a strong support network. One of the things I liked the most was how much the school cares about students and how much effort they put into making you feel at home. The faculty and staff are very supportive and encouraging. This allowed my classmates and I to fully integrate into the community and have a better learning experience. The Urbana-Champaign campus is also amazing, and there are so many activities and recreational spaces. The whole experience at Illinois Law has been the best combination of theoretical knowledge, hands-on legal experience, and memories to treasure for a lifetime.”
