There are actually two opportunities for international law professors to breakfast together and share their expertise at the annual American Association of Law Schools (AALS) conference in San Diego in January. The University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law is hosting its Annual International Law Breakfast on Thursday, January 8, 2009 from 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. in the Cardiff Room, South Tower/Level 3, San Diego Marriott Hotel & Marina. Pacific's breakfast will continue their recent tradition of engaging, in cooperation with the American Society of International Law (ASIL), in an exchange on how law schools should prepare their graduates to function in an era of increased globalization. This year, the discussion will focus on how these efforts impact the students. The breakfast discussion will particularly focus on assessing whether and to what extent the stated goals of these international courses and programs are being met. To join the discussion of how law schools have assessed, or might assess, the impact of international programs on students, please call 916-739-7316 . Remember, the Pacific breakfast is separate from the ASIL Teaching International Law Interest Group breakfast on Developing an Inernational Law Curriculum which will be held the following morning, January 9, from 7:30-8:30 am in Torrey 2, North Tower/Lobby Level, San Diego Mariott Hotel & Marina. More information on the ASIL TILIG breakfast can be found in an earlier post below and on the ASIL TILIG web page at www.asil.org.
