Dean David Meyer of the Tulane Law School, along with Dean Ira Solomon of the Tulane A.B. Freeman Business School, recently paid a visit to Panama City, Panama. A main event during the trip was the Tulane Alumni Reception held at the newly inaugurated law offices of Morgan & Morgan at MMG Tower one of the first green & eco-friendly buildings in Panama.

At the reception, Dean Meyer took the opportunity to present Payson’s innovative Panama Field Work Experience option for its Master’s of Science in International Development. This program, led by Payson’s Dr. Nanette Svenson, offers students the chance to complete up to two semesters of the Master’s coursework in Panama City, Panama, incorporating a work experience component there with the UN Regional Hub for Latin America and the Caribbean. Dean Meyer also highlighted the success of LLM Law & Development graduate, Hugo Wood Nuñez, with his recent appointment as Assistant to the Vice President of the Republic of Panama and introduced this year’s Panamanian LLM scholars, Cristina de Roux and Claudia Juárez, recipients of the Tulane Alumni Association of Panama Scholarship Award funded by members of the university’s extensive and vibrant Panamanian alumni base.

During the visit, Dr. Svenson also met with Dean Meyer and Katie Acuff, Tulane Director of Principal Gifts, to discuss expanding Tulane’s Panama programming and alumni outreach. As one of Tulane’s major international alumni bases in the hemisphere and a growing regional business and humanitarian hub, Panama offers considerable potential for new academic and research expansion.
