McGeorge School of Law’s distinctive two-year Global Lawyering Skills (GLS) intensive legal writing program — ranked #13 by U.S. News & World Report in 2012 — is designed to enhance and deepen the students’ experience in research, writing, and oral advocacy and produce skilled, practice-ready graduates. Complementing our commitment to globalizing the curriculum, GLS integrates international and comparative law into the program, requiring students to use international as well as domestic sources to solve client problems. This comprehensive preparation has been cited as the most significant integration of international and comparative law in a legal writing program.

The GLS program strives to equip its students with lawyering skills that are both global in breadth (a wide range of skills) and global in reach (include an understanding of an international and transnational perspective). The GLS faculty members are committed to their students and to integrating creative teaching and learning processes in the classroom. This blog will provide a forum for sharing their experiences and ideas, and for connecting with others who have the same passion for preparing law students for what’s next.  We look forward to exchanging ideas.
