Jim Batson from Bentham IMF’s New York office and Ianika Tzankova of Bentham Europe’s Netherlands office teamed up on Monday April 6, 2015 via Skype to educate law students in Professor Manuel Gomez’s Complex Litigation class at the Florida International University School of Law (“FIU College of Law”) about alternative litigation finance. Prof. Gomez regularly teaches courses on Complex Litigation, International Arbitration, Alternative Dispute Resolution, Law and Society, and Introduction to International and Comparative Law, with emphasis on Latin America. His class was an ideal setting to introduce and discuss the benefits of litigation finance in the global arena.
