    US law schools must increase global engagement to prepare students for the job market, raise global awareness, and increase intercultural competency. Law schools can create a global environment that facilitates this learning by recruiting international LLM students. Many universities have participated in the #WhyUS campaign to attract these students. Meanwhile, US law schools have lost talented applicants to law degree programs in Australia, Canada, the UK, as well as English-language law degrees offered in countries where English is not the primary language. This panel will address the global competition and present the value of earning a US LLM degree.
