    Abstract

    This article considers the role of international graduate law students as potentially contributing to the 'solution' of the economic challenges facing US law schools. It suggests that intense competition for international graduate students from law schools within and outside of the United States creates challenges for US schools interested in maintaining and developing their international student populations. Understanding what international students want will help schools succeed in this competition. Satisfying those desires may require schools to allow globalization to infiltrate their structures, activities and traditional approaches to educating lawyers.
