As law schools increasingly recruit foreign students, librarians are increasingly called upon to provide legal research training to foreign LL.M.s, S.J.D.s, and exchange students. This webinar provides insights from four panelists with extensive experience teaching foreign students in a variety of capacities. Panelists provide tips for helping foreign law students understand the skills needed for U.S. law practice, 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.
