This article seeks to explore two related questions. What could the institutions teaching law in the "New Europe," that is, in Eastern Europe and Russia, do in relation to new opportunities in legal education, and what should American law schools do in relation to the same essential problem (and opportunity).
The article is based on a panel presentation made at the Association of American Law Schools Session on "Educating Foreign and U.S. Lawyers for Global Challenges", Co-Sponsored by Sections on Graduate Programs for Foreign Lawyers and Post-Graduate Legal Education - AALS Annual Meeting - January 5, 2004, Atlanta, Georgia (USA).
