UCL Faculty of Laws


Roberto Baumgarten Kuster - LLM 2015

What have you gone on to do since graduating?  

Since graduating with an LLM from UCL Laws in 2015, I have become one of the senior mediators of the “Mediated Indemnization Programme”, supervising circa 1,500 cases at the Samarco dam collapse mediation programme.

It is the largest mediation programme in Brazil’s history, and one of the three largest in the world. I am also coordinating a mediation research group at the Federal University of Espirito Santo.

Why did you choose to study at UCL Laws?  

I wanted to study at UCL due to its global environment, world-class research and outstanding reputation.

What is your fondest memory of your time here? 

Some of my best memories of my time studying at UCL is the lecture theatres in Bentham House, and their amazing atmosphere for learning.

The induction week at Senate House was also a highlight, while also meeting friends from all over the world.

An LLM from UCL opened amazing opportunities in Brazil since I came back home. I can only thank the great team of mentors!
