Having taught economic law and foreign investment law for a number of years at Pontificia Universidad Catolica Madre y Maestra (PUCMM) in Santo Domingo, from 2008 to 2012 Pedro acted as coordinator of the Master in Business Law and International Litigation program jointly offered by PUCMM and Universidad Rey Juan Carlos in Madrid, Spain.
