Up for the Cultural Challenges

Meet Gould's new Associate Director of Graduate Instruction and Curriculum, Anitha Cadambi LLM 2011
Anitha Cadambi, who was recently appointed associate director of Graduate Instruction and Curriculum, tries to assume nothing. In her additional role as an adjunct professor for the LLM program at Gould, she instructs international students with law degrees from foreign universities. And she doesn’t expect the students in the courses she has taught since 2014 to come in with a certain level of experience or knowledge; the group in her classroom is simply too diverse for such conjectures.
What she knows about her students is that they share specific challenges relating to language and culture. For her, they make teaching even more enjoyable. And she knows firsthand what it means to be an LLM student. Born into an Indian family, she spent her early years in Orange County, but attended high school and law school in India.
|Prof. Cadambi (center) takes time after class to meet with Mohammed Khattab and Kristell Guerra, both LLMs class of 2018.|
|Cadambi says her own experience as an LLM has had "a tremendous influence” on how she approaches teaching.|
