William van Caenegem and Mary Hiscock (eds); Edward Elgar, 2014; 316pp; £76.50 (hardback)
Caenegem and Hiscock’s The Internationalisation of Legal Education: The Future Practice of Law (Edward Elgar, 2014) follows their earlier book, The Internationalisation of Law: Legislating, Decision Making, Practice and Education (Edward Elgar Publishing, 2010). The latest book is substantially based on contributions made at a symposium that focused on internationalisation of legal education held at Bond University in 2012. In their preface, the editors provide a cogent overarching theme for the work:
Whereas the emphasis and content of global law will continue to vary, the trend is clearly toward greater recognition of the necessity and value of an international perspective, both technical and cultural, in the law graduate of the future.
