I was drawn to tax law because it allows us to think about the law creatively in order to benefit society all over the world. Having worked at the Ministry of Finance, and having taught tax, I knew that advancing would require learning from top faculty in the field. That’s what drew me to Michigan Law. I’ve been amazed at how much I gained from this program: learning not only from experts in academia and in legal practice, but also from the different ways of thinking I found among my classmates, both American and international – and the close mentoring we received from our faculty was fantastic.
