Pericles Celebrates 10 Years in Russia
Text by Daniel Klein
In September the Pericles LL.M law school 10th Anniversary celebrations were led by its founders, husband and wife team Marian Dent; the school’s Dean, who is a U.S. attorney and her husband, Russian attorney Victor Lissniak. Through strategic alliances with American law schools, such as the University of San Diego’s Institute on International & Comparative Law, Pericles has been able to offer students short term summer scholarships abroad and other international opportunities. Pericles students and alumni are employed in all the major Western law firms located in Moscow, and several have gone on to study or work in cities like Washington D.C. and Los Angeles. Pericles law graduates have also been very successful in being awarded Fullbright and Muskie fellowships.
Pericles also helps potential MBA students prepare for graduate education in the West. Students prepare for GMAT and TOEFL at Pericles and are advised on schools and the application process. Pericles business alumni are studying at Wharton, University of Chicago, Columbia, London Business School, INSEAD and other top institutions around the world.
