On Thursday, December 5, 2019, 12 pm to 1 pm US/Central, please join the ALL-SIS and FCIL-SIS Continuing Education Committees for a webinar on Cross-Border Cultural Competency: Teaching Foreign Law Students and Training International Lawyers. ALL-SIS members can access a registration link here. FCIL-SIS members can access a registration link here.
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 will provide insights from four panelists with extensive experience teaching foreign students in a variety of capacities: Jodi Collova, Director of LL.M. Legal Research and Writing at Berkeley Law; Karina Condra, Foreign, Comparative & International Law Librarian at University of Denver Sturm College of Law; Heidi Frostestad Kuehl, Director of the Law Library at Northern Illinois University College of Law; and Mike McArthur, Head, Foreign Comparative & International Law and Collection Development at Duke Law. The panel will be moderated by Jessica Pierucci, Research Law Librarian for Foreign, Comparative, and International Law at UC Irvine School of Law.
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.
