Last month, the first meeting of the Law Schools Global League convened at the Tilburg University Law School, which was key in bringing the group about. Though law schools focus mostly on their own national law, this group of schools from around the world will expand the horizon of students and give them a global sense of law.

The only US school so far involved is Northwestern School of Law. Tilburg University is a key player in the Netherlands, along with GV Direito Sao Paulo in Brazil, and there are schools from Russia, China, France, Germany, India, France, and elsewhere involved.

“What this league promises is a constructive medium for exploring projects that are of significant value to our law students practicing in an increasingly global environment,” said Northwestern dean Daniel Rodriguez.

Indeed, with the globalization of English and mediums such as the internet, such groups are becoming possible, and with the increasing importance of international relations, such groups are becoming inevitable.

“Vigorous discussion at the meeting was focused on myriad forms of information delivery, comparative emphases on teaching and scholarship, different economic models of legal education and competing frameworks of bench-bar relations,” Rodriguez said. “In short, we saw in action the pluralism of legal education.”

Such words as pluralism are already hot-buttons in the humanities and in social sciences. It seems inevitable that the sense of global diversity and possible critiques of national hegemony and the structure of national and international laws is ripe for dialogue.
