Alejandro Alvarez Diaz Torre
Dual Master of Laws (LL.M.)
Legal Financial Advisor
Why did you decide to earn your master’s with @WashULaw?
Washington University School of Law offered the best program for my needs, with great materials, teachers and community.
What career or personal goals motivated you to pursue a deeper understanding of legal procedures in the U.S.?
I watched my friends and college peers continue to grow and access better job opportunities — but all those went right past me. I had been pushing back on earning a master’s degree for some time, and none of the options around made much sense. When I found Washington University’s dual degree program, though, it felt like a good fit.
How does this degree fit into your career plan?
Since it is common in my line of work to encounter transactions and operations with private equity and hedge funds from the United States, it was the best addition to my credentials that I could get.
What are your goals upon graduating?
I have been a legal financial advisor for some time on the side, but I’d like to do it as a full-time job.
How do online classes benefit your lifestyle?
Online classes are a huge help because I don’t have to step out of my office to attend class. Even if I’m on a trip, I can log into class and not fall behind.
What is your favorite class?
International Business Transactions and Professional Responsibility.
How do you see yourself making a difference with your degree?
I fell in love with Washington University. My goal is to provide the best advice to future lawyers so they, too, have the chance to study in one of the best law schools in the U.S.
