14th Global Legal Skills Conference

The 2019 Global Legal Skills Conference (GLS-14) will provide an opportunity to share the best practices of international legal skills education while taking in the beautiful surroundings of Phoenix, Arizona. The first Global Legal Skills Conference was held at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. It was an intimate conference connecting legal writing and ESL professionals who had an interest in teaching law students, lawyers, and other legal professionals from around the world. GLS has since grown to include not only legal writing faculty, but also international and comparative law professors, clinical faculty, linguists, librarians, judges, attorneys, court translators, law students and scholars interested in global legal skills education. Now in its 14th iteration, the conference draws hundreds of professionals from around the world.

The conference has been held four times in Chicago, three times in Mexico, twice in Costa Rica, twice in Italy, once in Washington D.C., and once in Melbourne, Australia. In December 2019, the conference travels Phoenix, Arizona and in 2020, the conference will make a third visit to Italy.
