Welcome to the inaugural issue of the Law School’s e>Perspectives International edition!
The Law School’s already-robust global community continues to grow stronger and larger with each academic year. This is no accident. We have long recognized the invaluable impact that an international reach has on our mission to continue to be a pioneer in legal education and research.
Our LL.M. students, Hubert H. Humphrey Law Fellows, and international exchange students make up a dynamic international alumni and student community, and the international presence among our J.D. students also is growing. We are excited to introduce e>Perspectives International as a way to share the news about members of the Law School community around the world with faculty, students, staff, and LL.M. alumni.
We hope you will share with us, too. Our international alumni are among the most active, and also among the most difficult to follow and contact. Please check in with us at www.law.umn.edu/llm/ class_notes.html and share your latest news and contact information.
e>Perspectives International is also a good resource for global readers who may be considering joining the Law School family. Whether you are a prospective LL.M. or J.D. student, you will see in this and upcoming issues the academic experiences and student services available to ensure a successful experience at the Law School. And you may also notice that our international students have a lot of fun during their stay here!
This is an exciting time for the Law School. We are already far along in a strategic planning process that lays the groundwork for reaching new heights over the next five to ten years. e>Perspectives International will chronicle that journey and the many extraordinary things our faculty, students, and alumni are doing.
We hope you will help us make e>Perspectives International interesting, relevant, and fun. Please complete a short survey and tell us what you would like to see included, what is of less interest, and any other feedback you wish to offer. We will do our best to make it happen.
David Wippman, Dean
