Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 178347453X, Hardcover)

'This is a wonderful collection of essays. The present volume contains rich articles and conveys creative and substantive ideas and information on the internationalization of law and legal education and legal practice. A timely book which will serve academics, legal professionals and policy and law makers alike in their search to keep legal education and the legal professions up to date to international and transnational legal and societal developments.'
- Aalt Willem Heringa, Maastricht University, The Netherlands

'Professors Hiscock and van Caenegem have drawn together an impressive group of international experts in legal education to take the reader on a fascinating journey. It ranges from the historical origins of different families of law, through the development of the institutions that support increasing connection across borders to anticipation of where the practice of law is heading, driven by the forces of global interconnectedness. This volume will help shape the internationalisation of legal education.'
- Duncan Bentley, Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Victoria University, Australia

'This is a fascinating collection of essays on how the world of legal education is responding to the globalisation challenge. It deserves a place on the shelf of every legal academic and practitioner with a serious interest in legal education. The utility of the book is enhanced by the fact that it is written from a variety of different and critical perspectives. It comes highly recommended.'
- Gerard McCormack, School of Law, University of Leeds, UK

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.
