MAP & DIRECTIONS

Paula Ibarra

I am from Barranquilla. My family background has instilled a strong sense of dedication and professionalism in me, as both of my parents and my brother are doctors. My journey into the world of law began at the tender age of 16, embarking on a path that has proven to be successful, challenging, and exciting. Throughout law school, I excelled and seized remarkable opportunities, including working with the Colombian Council of State and one of the largest law firms in Colombia and Latin America (PPU). In 2021, I made a life-changing decision to relocate to Miami, where I initially pursued an International Arbitration LLM degree. However, I transitioned to the JD program with the goal of becoming an American lawyer. Currently, I am on my last semester and I will be taking the Florida Bar in February 2024.
