The sixth Global Legal Skills Conference finished this afternoon at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. More than 200 participants came from around the world to discuss international legal education with a special focus on legal writing and skills education. Participants attended from Brazil, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Moldova, the Netherlands, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, the United States, and other countries. Legal writing professors, ESL professors, business professors, judges, and practicing attorneys mixed for three days of highly-interactive discussions. It was a great conference and we are already making plans for the next conference, which we expect to be in Central America this Spring.
Special thanks to Anthony Niedwiecki, Lurene Contento, Kim Chanbonpin, William Mock, and David Austin for all of their help.
