Partner Institutions and Law Firms
LawWithoutWalls is all about collaboration and innovation. The 150+ people currently participating in LawWithoutWalls are doing so because they believe that legal education and practice should embrace the challenges posed by the globalization of our world, the development of new technologies, the introduction of new legal service providers, the necessity for increased access to justice, the transdiciplinary nature of clients’ needs, and the disappearing distinction between business and law.
LawWithoutWalls celebrated its inaugural year in 2011. It took place over one semester and included six law schools from within the United States and outside the country: Fordham Law, Harvard Law, Miami Law, New York Law School, Peking University School of Transnational Law, and University College London Faculty of Laws. We had twenty-three students, eleven Academic Mentors, eleven Practitioner Mentors, four entrepreneurs, fourteen subject experts and three researchers all working together to identify problems in legal practice or education and create real solutions.
