The Center on the Global Legal Profession Web site is located at:http://globalprofession.law.indiana.edu.
The Indiana University Maurer School of Law’s Center on the Global Legal Profession has launched a new Web site, providing up-to-the-minute news and commentary on developments in the legal profession.
The new Web site features blogs from the center’s director, Professor William Henderson, and news on the center’s activities; and it instantly allows visitors to translate the site’s content into their native language.
Launched in August 2009, the Center on the Global Legal Profession unites three existing components at the Law School: the Law Firms Working Group, the Milt Stewart Comparative Legal Professions Program, and the innovative FutureFirm competition.
The three components are working collaboratively to understand all aspects of the legal profession, from the first year of traditional legal education to the benefits of involving retired attorneys in pro bono work. By studying the way lawyers work and function across international borders, the center can discover their most effective habits and incorporate those into an innovative legal education model. While the center’s work is based in Bloomington, Ind., its new Web site allows users from every corner of the map to research and participate in the study of the global legal profession.
“A center that focuses its work on globalization and the law should do everything in its power to actually connect people from every corner of the map,” Henderson said. “We look forward to continuing our work with attorneys, scholars, and institutions all over the world as we aim to understand the legal profession more clearly.”
