Using Law School Training to Create US and Canadian Lawyers
The practice of law continues to evolve alongside globalization. Now, persons embarking on a legal education may choose a course of study aimed at licensure as a lawyer in both the US and common law provinces in Canada. The opportunity arises from broad-minded thinking at the Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. The course of study "is intended to prepare students for admission in both countries within the traditional three-year J.D. timeframe." The full story is here at Law.com. The story also highlights other processes underway to increase cross-border licensure.
