Jay Finkelstein: Going International to Enhance Learning

At our 4th Annual Educating Tomorrow’s Lawyers Conference, Building on the Foundations for Practice, Jay Finkelstein of DLA Piper presented on immersing students in an international business negotiations simulation.

Finkelstein takes his extended simulation course, a two-school model with video-conferenced negotiations, to the next level – the US students travel to the partner school for a week of face to face interactions. This experience provides a true cross-cultural immersion, while also replicating the practice of an international transactional lawyer.
