In view of the impact of globalisation on legal services, law schools in various parts of the world have adopted strategies and initiatives to internationalise the law curriculum so as to train prospective lawyers and judges who are professionally competent and culturally sensitive in an increasingly globalised legal market. Based on thirty-two online audits of Australian law schools, this study attempts to ascertain the current situation of internationalisation among Australian law schools, identify the challenges on the path of internationalisation, and explain why it is judicious for Australian law schools to set the internationalisation of legal education as a priority.
