The recent changes in world political and economic structures call for an adjustment of legal education theory. The movement toward the globalization of the economy will open opportunities for the expansion of the market of legal services. However, it will also affect the availability and accessibility of those services. This essay describes some of the effects of the globalization movement on legal education and proposes some changes to help meet the challenge of preparing lawyers for practice in this new and rapidly changing world.
