This is the 4th international workshop in the Transatlantic Degree Programs Project (TDP) of Freie Universität Berlin and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). It will be held in cooperation with the German-American Lawyers Association, the Canadian German Lawyers Association, and the Canadian Embassy Berlin. There is no workshop fee, but the number of participants will be limited. The application deadline is February 26, 2008. The workshop is open to journalists; however, they are requested to register in advance.
The goal of the workshop is to examine the current debate on internationalization in law education and to discuss successful examples of transatlantic curriculum cooperation, including joint and double degree programs. Examples of such programs will be presented and analyzed. The workshop is intended as a stimulus toward the creation and implementation of additional programs on both sides of the Atlantic.
