Faculty Emphasis on Student Capacity with Comparative Law

Jonathon D. Cahn, The Global Legal Professional and the Challenges to Legal Education, 20 Penn. St. Intl. L. Rev. 55, 61 (2001).

The author suggests to legal academics that their challenge is to learn enough about the the global legal organization and the cross border disciplines they rely upon, to design courses that are relevant, that gives their students mobility within the culture of those organizations. Academics should place an emphasis on both transferable disciplines and a capacity with comparative law that enables the lawyer to transfer these competencies (and individual experiences) across national borders from one legal system to another.
