In the face of increasing globalization, is the current focus on legal education of a national nature, with a secondary specialization in international or comparative law, still appropriate? Rather, should one invert the educational process by first giving students a transnational legal education and then providing them exposure to the various legal systems around the world, before offering them the opportunity to specialize in a particular national law? After observing the transsytemic program offered by McGill University, and building upon his current experience at the University of Luxembourg, the writer examines these questions from a European perspective. If, as he concludes, it is simply not possible to implement a largescale transnationalization of the existing legal education system in Europe, not only because of a general lack of need for so called "international lawyers", but also due to the many structural obstacles thereto then, the writer submits, it should nonetheless be possible, within specific contexts, to provide an exposure to the phenomenon of transnationalization. * .
