LL.M. Programs and Online Learning

While not squarely within the international and comparative law wheelhouse, another panel at the AALS Annual Meeting will discuss the education of international lawyers in US law schools,  online and in hybrid programs. The panel, sponsored by the AALS Post-Graduate Legal Education Section, will be on Sunday, January 9.  There will be a panel discussion from 12:35 PM - 1:50 PM (Eastern Standard Time) followed by a section networking session from 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (Eastern Standard Time).  

The panel is titled "How LL.M. Programs Adapted to Online Learning, and the Future Role of Hybrid and Online Classes."  This panel will focus on how LL.M. and other non-JD programs adapted to the online learning environment during the pandemic and explore the future role of hybrid and online classes in law school education. Panelists will discuss the teaching and learning modalities and methods employed during remote learning and compare experiences at different law schools. The panel will also examine the regulatory environment, including ABA, New York Bar, and Student and Exchange Visitor Program, and explore how programs could advocate for greater flexibility going forward.  Panelists include John Thornton (Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law), and Celeste Hammond (University of Illinois Chicago School of Law).  Ashley Sim (University of Southern California Gould School of Law) will moderate.
