I wanted to bring to your attention this exciting conference at Harvard Law School later this month!
Global Legal Education Forum
Harvard Law School
March 23-25, 2012
Harvard Law School S.J.D. Students Association
The aim of the Global Legal Education Forum is to develop a thicker understanding of
the intellectual and professional trajectories of contemporary legal education reforms,their implications for global and national elite leadership, the potential distributive effects for law schools that lack the resources to “go global,” and the distinctiveness of these reforms relative to other disciplines. The Global Legal Education Forum will convene HLS S.J.D. Alumni, law school deans, law professors, legal practitioners,law students and graduate candidates, as well as academics from other disciplines.
Themes for discussion at the Forum will include:
• What is a “global law school” and who is a “global lawyer”?
• Setting the Agenda: What is the purpose(s) of legal education?
• Teaching across systems and borders: Comparative and Transnational Business
Law, Public Law, and Private Law
• Methods of Learning and Engagement: Technology, Language and Clinical
• Methodologies for Global Legal Thought
• Educational Innovation in the Global South and North
