    Sarah Drinkwater | B.A., University of Colorado | J.D. Candidate for 2009, University of Pittsburgh School of Law | International & Comparative Law Certificate Program | Sarah Drinkwater has spent much of her career studying the interactions between international, national, and local non-governmental organizations and communities. Much of her work, including her work in Uganda and Thailand, has focused on the ability of communities to institute development measures at the grassroots level. Her greatest passion comes from seeing people gain the tools and knowledge to successfully pursue economical, social, cultural and environmental sustainability on their own. Sarah decided to pursue a career in law because of her interest in the rule of law and because of her desire to create a more just and equal system for under or un-represented people of the world. She is currently the founder and president of the student chapter of Mediators Beyond Borders, Pitt chapter (MBB Pitt), which encourages and trains students to work with communities worldwide to build their conflict resolution capacity to prevent, resolve, and heal from conflict.
