    This program will review recent changes to the ABA standards that make it easier to send U.S. law students on overseas programs if those programs are sponsored by their own schools. That presentation will be followed by a survey of successful international exchange programs and an objective assessment of the value that these exchanges should have for law students. We will also review the responsibility of schools to look after the educational needs of non-U.S. law students. Finally, we will exchange ideas on how to prevent and respond to problems that might arise in international exchange programs.

    Business meeting held on Wednesday, January 3 at 5:30pm.
