Hello ILS members,
ILS Presents: An Evening at Professor Malone's House
Lunch & Discussion with Mr. Jeffery Trammell
On September 19th, 2012, International Law Society invited Mr. Jeffery Trammell to William and Mary Law School. We hosted a small group lunch with Mr. Trammell and invited him to give us a lecture in Room 127 after the lunch. During the lecture and discussion, Mr. Trammell gave us a overview of the development of international trade.
He said, with the economic globalization, the structure of law firms and the divisions of legal work will be different from current. Different area of international trade will need more specialists, who have further knowledge of the area. The globalization will also affect the legal development of patent and intelligent law, as we are sharing more and more intelligent materials with other countries.
He also gave us some advices on job searching and net working. He emphasized that law students should find which area is the best for them to fill in, and legal education is important to give us a big picture, and it is necessary for real practice.
