Philadelphia Bar Association, 'International Law & Committee on Academic Engagement'

Speaker: Erica Hall Dressler

12:00 PM
Philadelphia Bar Association, 'International Law & Committee on Academic Engagement'

In partnership with Global Philadelphia, the International Law Committee of the Philadelphia Bar Association will host a panel discussion featuring recent graduates of the law schools in our metropolitan area.

The message? You don't have to move to New York or D.C. to become an international lawyer. Philly is a great venue for top-notch international legal education and international law practice. Our speakers will show how international educational experiences - whether in the form of study on campus or externship abroad, distance learning, research project or other experiences at Philadelphia area law schools - set them on the path to practice international law right here in Philadelphia.
