A unique feature of Miami Law's LL.M. programs is the select program size and the mentoring students receive from faculty. Juan Pablo Moyano Garcia, who received his LL.M. in International Law (U.S. and Transnational for Foreign-Trained Lawyers) in 2016, is one such LL.M. graduate. He received guidance and encouragement from esteemed Professor Jan Paulsson which resulted in the publishing of an article Moyano Garcia wrote in the prestigious Journal of International Arbitration.

The article, written for Professor Paulsson’s advanced arbitration seminar last year, focused on the legal consequence of lack of payment of deposits during an arbitration and on the way courts have answered this practical issue. Professor Paulson is also the Faculty Chair of Miami Law's White & Case International Arbitration LL.M. program.

“I had the great honor of being Professor Paulsson’s student, and he suggested I try to publish the article that I wrote for the seminar,” said Moyano Garcia. “I’m grateful for his help in developing the article and his support in pushing to have it published.”

Moyano Garcia, who hails from Mexico, started his professional career in Bufete García Jimeno, S.C., a recognized litigation firm in Mexico City. He began working there as an intern during his third year of law school, and continued his services as a full-time attorney in the field of civil and commercial litigation.

He finished his legal studies at the Escuela Libre de Derecho in Mexico City in 2010 and obtained his legal qualifications in the year 2011, obtaining an honorary distinction during his professional exam. In 2013 he successfully completed his Master degree (LL.M.) in Comparative and International Dispute Resolution at Queen Mary, University of London with special focus on international commercial and investment arbitration, graduating with Distinctions.

Following this, he began working in Wilmer Hale's London Arbitration Group as a legal intern, and subsequently as a visiting foreign lawyer during 2014.

He currently works as a Case Director for the International Centre for Dispute Resolution.
