|In January 2007 the Faculty of Law at Lunds University celebrated the centennial in 2006 of Suffolk University Law School in Boston, Mass., with a symposium entitled Globalization and the U.S. Law School: Comparative and Cultural Perspectives, 1906 – 2006.|
The symposium was organized by the Professors Stephen C. Hicks (Suffolk) and Kjell Å. Modéer (Lund). The lectures from this symposium are published in this volume, edited by Professors Hicks and Modeer.
The main theme for the symposium was a hundred years of legal education. The first part presented the cultural and educational context at the time of the foundation of the Suffolk Law School in 1906 in the U.S. and Sweden. The second part considered post-war U.S. law schools with their modern concepts derived from legal realism and their new international academic émigrés from Europe. The third and last part described the current condition of the legal education with an increasingly international transnational paradigm of global law and global law schools.
