The Global Legal Skills Committee is dedicated to helping Legal Writing Professors teach law students and lawyers whose native language is not English. You may be teaching them in the United States or abroad. To that end, we will post useful references for this audience. You can find here information about conferences and organizations where you can learn more about teaching second-language [second-law] students and lawyers. Finally, for those of you interested in teaching abroad, we plan to collect information on overseas job opportunities.
