Vol. 43 No. 2


Mark E. Wojcik is a professor at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago and co-chair of the Global Legal Skills Conference.

The Global Legal Skills (GLS) Conference is an international conference of educators, practitioners, and language specialists who meet annually to explore needs and trends in international legal education. The conference has been held twice in Mexico; twice in Costa Rica; once in Washington, D.C.; and three times in Chicago. The ABA Section of International Law is a formal co-sponsor of the next GLS Conference, which will be held from May 21–23, 2014, at the University of Verona Faculty of Law in northern Italy.

The GLS Conference originated at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. The first GLS Conference was an innovative forum connecting legal writing professionals who had an interest in teaching international students and foreign lawyers. Since then, the GLS Conference has grown to include international and comparative law professors, clinical faculty, linguists, librarians, court translators, and others making substantive presentations on various aspects of international and comparative law.

Section members who are interested in attending the GLS Conference can find more information at The Verona conference will also include a networking session featuring members of the Section of International Law.
