The 8th Global Legal Skills Conference is being held next week at the Holiday Inn Aurola in Downtown San José, Costa Rica (Central America). Participants are expected from Australia, Canada, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Italy, Japan, Mexico, and from across the United States. The conference is organized through The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, where it first originated.
This year's Global Legal Skills conference (the second to be held in Costa Rica) includes a "legal field trip" with visits to:
- the Supreme Court of Costa Rica (Corte Suprema de Justicia de Costa Rica),
- the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, and
- the U.S. Embassy in Costa RIca.
Other special features of this year's conference include a plenary session to introduce law and legal education in Costa Rica and Central America and two contract negotiations workshops (one in Spanish for English speakers and one in English for Spanish speakers).
The conference is being held during the week of the Central American Games, so it will be an especially exciting time to be in Costa Rica.
