Asynchronous: The Global Lawyer (3 credits) Globalization affects the practice of law in many ways. There is no doubt that globalization stimulates international trade and commercial activity by easing the movement of capital, labor, goods, and services across borders, resulting in an increasing need for lawyers capable - in both training and the resources they have at hand - of functioning in a multi-cultural and multi-jurisdictional environment. The course examines the nature of crossborder Practice and the legal market, trade agreements, international organizations, and crossborder practice, outsourcing of legal work, globalization and the legal profession, the “lay of lawyer land”, lawyers in selected jurisdictions, lawyers in the European Union. Thus, globalization requires a new type of lawyer and new types of law firms. - Professor Dennis Campbell Apply
