LLM Student Selected for Prestigious State Department Program

Grigor Chobanyan, LLM student 2017

April 28, 2017

Grigor Chobanyan, a Fulbright Foreign Student, has been selected for the Edmund S. Muskie Internship Program.

Muskie interns are chosen through a competitive process in which the U.S. State Department selects  Fulbright Foreign Students from Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia who demonstrate the greatest potential to serve as leaders who can respond to evolving issues on the world stage.

Chobanyan, a native of Armenia who will graduate in May with an LLM in American Legal Practice, will complete a summer internship at White and Williams in Philadelphia, paid by the State Department.

The summer internship follows a co-op placement that Chobanyan completed at White and Williams during the spring semester.

Having come to the Kline School of Law with two years’ experience as an attorney who focused on alternative dispute resolution, Chobanyan will work in White and Williams' International Transactions and Disputes Practice.

After his internship, Chobanyan will return to Armenia, well prepared to practice international law and international business law.
