Rebecca Pendleton earned her BA in English from Stephens College in 2000 and her JD from City University of New York (CUNY), School of Law, in 2012. Shortly after law school, she combined her passion for language and law to teach LLB and LLM law students at Universidad Externado de Colombia, School of Law, using an ESL-based curriculum. Her love of teaching led her to pursue a Ph.D. in Law at the same institution. Having taught non-native English-speaking law students abroad, she brings with her the ability to explain the broader legal framework and context of the assignment to a diverse set of students. She also has experience counseling students on internships abroad, providing guidance on professional development, and serving as an advisor for student thesis or capstone projects.
