Record-setting Number of Teams Registered to Compete in 2020 Jessup Competition
We added a new partnership with the Grunin Center for Law and Social Entrepreneurship at New York University School of Law to our growing roster of programs for law students.
We also invest in programs that help diversify the pipeline of young people interested in careers in law or law firm management.
Our investment in education extends to training for practicing lawyers and judges. We applied a tailored approach for lawyers in The Republic of The Gambia in collaboration with the International Senior Lawyers Project (ISLP).
When the Center for Reproductive Rights (CRR) received a grant to create a training program to sensitize judges globally about the importance and impact of reproductive rights, they turned to us to help create a model curriculum.
Following the opening of Bhutan's first law school, we speak to the school's Dean, Sangay Dorjee, and Vice Dean, Michael Peil, to get the inside story.
In 2008, White & Case Frankfurt partner Andreas Knebel, who had vacationed in the Bhutanese Himalayas, mentioned to White & Case Chairman Hugh Verrier that there was a desire in the Kingdom of Bhutan, which was transitioning from an absolute monarchy to a democracy, to establish its own law school.
White & Case is working with Namati, an NGO building a global movement of grassroots legal advocates to work with individuals and communities who may not otherwise have access to any legal support.
Our lawyers teach students and lawyers in many countries to help them improve their skills and broaden their understanding of legal concepts.
From Afghanistan to Mexico and Iran to Macao, the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition is reaching every corner of the globe.
