Cross-Border Cultural Competency: Teaching Foreign Law Students and Training International Lawyers

Thursday, December 5, 2019 (12pm - 1pm US/Central)

This webinar is co-sponsored by the FCIL-SIS and ALL-SIS Continuing Education Committees and will include insights from four panelists with extensive experience teaching foreign students in various capacities. The panelists will address cross-border cultural competency issues in answering a series of questions about their experience and learned best practices. Panelists will address helping foreign law students understand the skills needed for U.S. law practice and understanding, effectively addressing cultural differences that can impact learning, teaching classes with a mixture of U.S. and foreign law students, and bringing cultural competency skills to teaching U.S. students.
