    Practitioners often assume that lawyers from across a border or an ocean will naturally understand what they mean, as though law exists as a universal construct and terms can be directly translated. This program examines the way that law is taught in different countries and how that both affects and reflects the way that law is practiced in them. The first half of the program will be a panel presentation by deans and professors from both civil law and common law systems. The second half will be a presentation drawn from a call for papers. There will be time for open discussions at the end so that we can all share our ideas and ideals for pedagogy. By learning how others learn, we may expand our own understanding of our international students, colleagues, and the global profession.
