ROOM LB 208

Gillian Dutton, Seattle University School of Law

Lisa C. Smith, Brooklyn Law School

This session will discuss the benefits that international externships provide to students in an increasingly global economy. The presenters will identify the types of opportunities available around the globe with special emphasis on finding placement options for a wider range of students. The presenters will also identify ways in which a community of externship educators is collaborating to resolve common issues with
international placements including liability issues, limited travel budgets, finding appropriate placements and cross-cultural communication and competencies. Persons attending the workshop will collaborate to identify strategies for overcoming barriers to creating international experiences for law students. The strategies identified will be shared with the current AALS Subcommittee on International and Semester in Practice Externships. The presenters will also share the resources and approaches discussed by the AALS Subcommittee on Remote and International Placements.
