Abstract

Extract: The advent of information technology and the ever-increasing incidence of international commercial transactions have made it impracticable, if not impossible, for any country in the world to isolate itself. As diverse legal systems meet at various junctions, there is the inevitable need for legal professionals who are conversant with international law and/or the laws of the countries which they will encounter in their respective practices. To prepare lawyers and judges for a dynamic and interactive legal world, legal educators have adopted various measures to internationalise the law curriculum. Since legal training is a significant constituent of the law, this chapter is designed to provide an overview of the internationalisation of legal education.
