At the Board of Overseers semi-annual meeting in November, members were given a comprehensive introduction to the Law School's International Program and to the ways that global perspectives are integrated into the overall curriculum.
Professor David Wirth, director of the international program, coordinated the presentation and recruited faculty to speak on how the growing influence of globalization is reflected throughout the curriculum and in faculty research and scholarship. A current student and three recent graduates also helped highlight co-curricular and summer programs in which students participate.
Chair Richard Campbell '74 introduced the program by showing the extent to which law firms and companies emphasize their international capabilities in their own promotions. He stressed the importance of preparing students for work in an increasingly international environment.
In other business, three new members joined the board: Robert Trevisani '58, Douglas MacMaster '58, and David Weinstein '75. Anne Jones '61 resigned, leaving twenty-three overseers on the board.
