    U.S. law schools have developed dramatically the number of programs with an international component, exposing thousands of students to foreign and comparative legal knowledge and experiences in different degrees. Yet there is still no comprehensive typology of these kinds of programs or evaluation of the successes and failures encountered in their development. International cooperation that create opportunities for students include summer programs, semester abroad programs, dual J.D. programs, LL.M.s and dual LL.M.s, international externships and the like. This panel seeks to analyze the impact of these programs in fulfilling the educational mission of law schools, both at home and abroad while identifying best practices, challenges and means to promote these endeavors.
