    Most foreign LLM students hope for an LLM experience where they feel integrated into the life of the United States law school that they choose to attend. However, a large number of these students leave their LLM year feeling that their program fell short in this area. This panel will explore ways to bridge the gap between the JD and LLM programs. Speakers on this panel will be exploring this issue from numerous angles, such as asking what foreign lawyers expect, how to manage these expectations, using comparative law in the curriculum of integrated JD/LLM classes, designing the proper ratio of integrated classes to LLMonly classes, building bar preparation into the program, and creating social programming to promote inclusion.
