               Globalization and Legal Education:
                  A View from the Center
       Susan Katcher
       Associate Director, East Asian Legal Studies Center

            We live in an age of globalization. The definition of
       globalization may vary: One article states that it is “the
       fast-paced growth of trade and cross-border investm ent.” 1
       Another, “integrating economies across the globe.” 2 Yet
       the term “may well be too multifaceted and contested to be
       reduced to [one] definition,” 3 and it is prob ably accurate
       that “[t]here is no single, simple model of globalization.” 4
       Wh at we do know with certainty is that the phenom enon
       of globalization , in addition to affecting our economic and
       cultural lives, has influenced our educational institutions.
       American law schools are no exception.

            Recent literature reflects the efforts of American law
       schools to internationalize their curriculum and the
       concern that law schools are not doing enough in this
       regard. It has been said that U.S. lawyers may “be at a
       disadvantage in the international market for legal services”
       because they are not learning about foreign lawyers and    d

       U.S. law.5     Many law schools have begun to include
       international components, either through their curricula or
       programs or both.6 A 199 6 survey by the Am erican Bar
       Association showed that 99% of all Am erican law schools
       have at least one international law course.7 Nevertheless,
       according to the same survey, on average only about one-

   My biggest news of the year is that Yoko and I welcomed our second son o n August 20, 2002, Stanley Shoma Araki. He is doing
 very well and his bro ther, Alex, is making a nice adjustment, too. Work is fine. Considering that we have been affected by the
 economic recession, like everybody else, and many are losing their jobs, I feel fortunate to have one.

owned by Japanese government and JBIC's budget is one part of Japanese fiscal budget. Ministry of Finance's position is very hard
