[en] legal education ; comparative law ; globalization
[en] 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.
