LawWithoutWalls, a trailblazing academic program founded at Miami Law, will be expanded next year to include students and faculty members from an additional six schools from around the world, for a total of 18.
The new partner institutions include the IE Law School in Segovia, Spain, where LawWithoutWalls' third annual program will launch in January with an intensive weekend session. The other new additions are National Law School of India University, based in Bangalore; Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, in Santiago; Tel Aviv University Buchmann Faculty of Law; University of Montréal Faculty of Law; University of São Paulo Faculty of Law; and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
At the University of Miami School of Law, Professor Michele DeStefano and her colleague Michael Bossone, who co-founded LawWithoutWalls and direct its far-flung operations, said in an e-mail message that they are "delighted" to welcome the new schools and their lead faculty "to our community."
"LawWithoutWalls continues to grow and seek collaborative relationships across the globe, and none of this would be possible without all of you and your contributions," the message said.
Besides Miami Law and the newly announced schools, the institutions participating in LawWithoutWalls are University College London's Faculty of Laws; the University of St. Gallen's Executive School of Management, Technology and Law; Fordham Law School; Harvard Law School; the IE Business School in Madrid; Indiana University Maurer School of Law; New York Law School; Peking University School of Transnational Law; Stanford Law School; and Sydney Law School.
