Mauricio Grande is a graduate of Stanford University with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a minor in French. His studies were primarily focused on International Relations, American Politics and French Literature.
While at Stanford, Mauricio participated in a special research project under the auspices of the Political Science Department. That project was centered on the entry of militant groups into Colombian politics. His participation involved translating and summarizing portions of books on the history of these movements. He also transcribed interviews conducted between prominent Colombian party leaders and PhD candidates.
In 2011, Mauricio studied in Paris as a part of Stanford’s Bing Overseas Studies Program. He took courses in French on a variety of topics, including the complexity of political integration in the European Union. His studies there also provided practical experiences in both French language and culture, and European politics.
While at Stanford, Mauricio was an active participant in academic and extracurricular activities. He was a Section Editor of the Stanford Journal of International Relations, where he was responsible for editing student submissions and reviewing the Journal with the Editorial Board. In student government, he first served as the representative of his freshman dorm in the Frosh Council and later was a committee member in the Senior Class Cabinet. In his editorial roles and in student government, Mauricio developed strong skills in time management, communication and attention to detail, important assets for his work at Wood LLP.

He provides assistance in factual research, copy editing and cite checking, publication and client-related document management, court filings and factual analysis.
