Globalization and United States Law Practice

Publication Title

Washington University Global Studies Law Review


This Article advances the idea that globalization of law is inevitable and that legal education and experience in the United States uniquely prepares attorneys to practice in an increasingly global legal environment. The reason is that the United States, with its fifty sovereign states, has allowed for the development of a full range of legal approaches to most modern business issues. As the laws and practices in other countries change to keep pace with the globalization of business, the results are often a reflection of elements previously debated, accepted, or rejected in one or more U.S. jurisdictions.
