Comparative Legal Professions – 6713
Globalization has increasingly brought American lawyers in contact with legal professionals in other countries. Most American lawyers have little understanding of how legal training in other countries differs from their own experience as law students nor how much variation in how legal professions are organized from country to country. The purpose of this course is to equip future practitioners with the knowledge and understanding that will facilitate their interactions with legal professionals from other countries. The course will involve a combination of lectures by the instructor, visits by current LLM students who have practice experience in their home countries, and readings about lawyers in other countries.
