Creating "Practice Ready" International Lawyers
A two-part program at the Spring Meeting of the American Bar Association Section of International Law focused on legal practice and professional competence in the global legal marketplace. The panelists are discussing how to train lawyers in problem solving, legal analysis and reasoning, legal research and writing, document drafting, negotiation skills, factual investigation, and other lawyering skills necessary for successful practice.
