Dean David Partlett to Present Paper at AALS Conference
Story Abstract:Dean David Partlett will present his paper, "Distance Learning: Loosening the Ties that Bind," at the Association of American Law Schools Conference on Educating Lawyers for Transnational Challenges.
This conference will bring together 150 legal educators, representing over 50 countries and all of the world’s major legal systems. It is designed not only to bring about a dialogue concerning the education of graduates for a transnational law practice, but also to consider formulating a possible curriculum outline for a law school that seeks to educate its graduates for such a practice. It is also expected that this conference will lead to the establishment of an International Association of Law Schools to facilitate cooperation among the world’s law schools, including the development of partnerships between law schools with significant resources and those that have significant resource needs. The Association is expected to develop information exchange programs and a series of programs to help advance the curricular objectives, and a better understanding of different legal systems and cultures.
