Overview

For graduate lawyers to succeed in a global environment, legal education in every system must undergo revolutionary change. Professors van Caenegem and Hiscock explore in detail the new initiatives that are emerging as a response to this development and the reaction from the profession to these changes.


Divided into five sections, the expert contributors of this book provide different perspectives on legal education in an ever-growing industry:


• Dealing with the different national philosophies of legal education

• Ignoring the civil law and common law divide – a brave new world

• Evolving initiatives in legal education for global practice

• International practice − attorneys’ insights

• Litigation and arbitration – international advocacy across borders


This book will be useful to scholars and practitioners alike who are charged with teaching law students and preparing them for the demands of practice.
