2017 International Legal Education Abroad Conference: Making an Impact!
Each year, the International Legal Education Abroad Conference (ILEAC) brings together key practitioners from across the United States and abroad to discuss common challenges and to develop best practices to some of the most pressing issues in the exciting and dynamic area of international legal education abroad.
The 2017 conference will be hosted by the American University Washington College of Law (AUWCL) in Washington, DC and will address the theme Making an Impact! Panels and discussions will offer unique perspectives, innovative ideas, and critical assessments on creating, achieving, measuring, and ensuring success in international legal education abroad. Conference sessions will focus on the impact made by and on JD students, law school international programs offices, other law school faculty and administrators, international partners, alumni, employers, and the global legal community.
For those faculty and administrators who wear multiple hats, AUWCL will host the ILEAC together with the 2017 LL.M. Administrators’ Conference. ILEAC will be held on Thursday, February 23, 2017 and the LL.M. Administrators' Conference will be held on Friday, February 24, 2017. Both events will take place at AUWCL’ s new campus in Washington, DC and will be preceded by an opening reception on the evening of Wednesday, February 22, 2017. More event details and request for conference proposals will be posted shortly.
ILEAC began with an inaugural event in 2011 at AUWCL as one of the first gatherings of International JD Dual Degree administrators. From that point, the conference has grown into an annual forum on a variety of topics for all legal educators and administrators involved in international legal education abroad. In 2016, participants from 35 US law schools, non-US law schools, private sector entities and international organizations came together at Stetson University College of Law to discuss how international legal education abroad can embrace the changing legal education landscape and provide meaningful global legal experiences for law students. This year, we hope to see you in DC!
