ABSTRACT
The author discusses reasons why the U.S. legal education system needs to be reformed to accommodate the interests of law schools and foreign students. Several factors that attract foreign lawyers to practice-oriented law programs in the U.S. are explored, including an expansion of professional opportunities in students' home countries and an interest in a substantive area of law. The author emphasizes the importance of pursuing interaction, communication and integration between U.S. and foreign students.
