    Both J.D. graduates who have participated in international programs and non-U.S. graduates of our LL.M. and J.S.D. programs face daunting prospects in finding employment that will allow them to draw on their international experiences, especially in the current economic environment.  Arguably, law schools should assist these students by preparing them for the job market and helping them to carry out their job searches.  Ideally, this assistance should begin early in a student’s law school career and continue through the hiring process.  Unfortunately, law schools often do not have the resources to support students with international backgrounds in their unique job searches.  This program addresses the challenges of law schools in fostering the international careers of these students beyond graduation without overburdening limited law school resources.  With this in mind, panelists will look at ways law schools may help J.D. graduates who have participated in international programs find local and regional employment that will make use of their cross-cultural legal education.   The panelists also will address ways law schools may help non-U.S. graduates of LL.M. and J.S.D. programs obtain short- or long-term employment in the U.S. or elsewhere.
