06 Sep 2022

“I chose the University of Sydney because it is one of the most outstanding law schools in the world and because Sydney is one of the cities with the best quality of life,” explained Pablo Alarcón, an associate at JDF who won Becas Chile to study an LLM in that city.

“At JDF I have focused on litigation and arbitration linked to contractual issues. In the LLM program, I am opting for those subjects linked to contracts, where I will have the opportunity to study methods of drafting contracts, ways to prevent breaches and, finally, in case of problems, solutions to these problems,” explained Pablo, who is part of the Dispute Resolution and Litigation team.

The experience acquired in JDF will allow him to complement and reinforce his new skills, considering that in Chile, in highly complex contracts, the incorporation of common law clauses is becoming more and more common. “Knowing these matters, studying their foundations and analyzing their effects, will undoubtedly contribute a lot in my return to JDF, in order to provide added value to the area of Dispute Resolution and Litigation,” stated Pablo Alarcón.
