As our Fall classes settle into a routine pattern, it is now time to acknowledge some of the remarkable attorney-students in this year's class and the sponsors that make their participation in our Program possible.

We are delighted to report that the Mark Opanasiuk is the first Fulbright Scholar to attend our Program.  When Mark was selected to for the Fulbright Student Program, our Program was his first program of choice.

Mark is familiar with our Program thanks in part to his colleague at the Inyurpolis Law Firm (ILF) in Kharkiv, Ukraine, LL.M.  Professor Christopher Kelley, who serves as a consultant to the firm. Mark serves as a Junior Associate with the ILF, in its Investment Consulting Department.

Mark is pursuing a Ph.D. from  the Research Institute of State Department and Municipal Government of Academy of Legal Sciences of Ukraine, holds a Master of Laws, diploma cum laude, from the National Law University named after Yaroslav the Wise (NLU), and a Bachelor of Laws, diploma cum laude, from the Nat’l Law University named after Yaroslav the Wise (NLU).  In addition to his studies, Mark will assist LL.M. Professor Christopher Kelley in recruiting additional international students to the LL.M. Program and the law school's Accelerated J.D. Program.
