UC Davis trains attorneys from largest law firm in Latin America

From page A3 | April 11, 2012 |

As part of a long-standing relationship with UC Davis, 22 attorneys from Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. (Petrobras), Brazil, an international leader in energy production and alternative energy solutions, will study this month at the UCD School of Law.

The program is offered through the law school and the Center for International Education at UCD Extension, which since 2006 have delivered 15 such programs to more than 145 Petrobras attorneys.

The intellectually rigorous training meets the specific request of Petrobras for legal education with an explicit focus on U.S. contract law and dispute resolution. Attorneys from around the world with expertise in energy law will present and discuss case studies as well as simulations from the energy industry.

Petrobras’ explosive growth has required a substantial increase to its law firm — the largest in Latin America — and created a need for attorneys proficient in commercial energy law, a news release said.

Beth Greenwood, executive director of the international law programs, notes that the program is aimed at increasing participants’ understanding and ability to use legal English terminology within the context of the U.S. legal system.

“By increasing their understanding of appropriate technical language and effective dispute resolution strategies, these attorneys increase their ability to arbitrate and work within the framework of U.S. contract law, an essential component of doing business in and with the United States,” she said.

The Petrobras attorneys will be welcomed at a reception from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 17, at UCD. For more information, contact program director Carolyn Penny at clpenny@ucdavis.edu or (530) 757-8569.
