He will begin this new role in the Fall 2017 semester serving as an Adjunct Professor, Transactional Externship, teaching Contract Drafting, Mergers and Acquisitions, and Corporate Compliance.
Montes de Oca earned his Juris Doctor degree from the school in 2001, where he graduated magna cum laude. During his time there, he was Symposium Editor of the Inter-American Law Review and a member of the Moot Court Board, the Society of Bar and Gavel and the Center for Ethics and Public Service.
“It is a privilege to return to my alma mater and join the distinguished faculty at the University of Miami School of Law to teach our future lawyers,” said Richard Montes de Oca. “I’m so excited to share the corporate and compliance experience I’ve gained throughout my legal career from both a law firm and in-house counsel perspective, and certain it will be a mutually rewarding experience for both me and the students.”
