International Bridging the Gap
Have you started an international legal career or are you interested in expanding your skill set to include international law? It can be challenging to develop the knowledge and experience necessary to represent clients in international legal affairs, such as cross-border mergers and acquisitions, international litigation and arbitration, and international corporate law. In the increasingly globalized and interconnected world, legal work often requires a multidisciplinary, cross-border approach. Issues may be complex and varied, and it often takes years to learn about the many aspects of international practice.
Organized by the New York State Bar Association, International Section (“NYSBA International”), this course covers critical aspects of international law for those entering or practicing in this diverse and complex area. Join a distinguished and experienced NYSBA International faculty and learn about the fundamental underlying areas of cross-border practice and other critical aspects of international law, and receive sixteen (16) MCLE credits, including three (3) ethics credits.
Sponsored by the Committee on Continuing Legal Education and the International Section of the New York State Bar Association and Fordham University School of Law.
