Shifting Paradigms of Parochialism: Lessons for Legal Education
Suffolk University Law School
INTERNATIONAL ECONOMIC LAW: THE STATE AND FUTURE OF THE DISCIPLINE, Colin Picker, Isabella Bunn, Douglas Arner, eds., Hart Publishing, 2008
This book chapter is part of a symposium edition for the annual conference of the American Society of International Law, International Economic Law Interest Group held at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire in November 2006. The focus of this piece is on the teaching of international economic law and the future of the discipline. More specifically, this chapter draws from the author's experiences of teaching a NAFTA course transnationally; that is, with the participation of Mexican, Canadian, and U.S. students working on trade issues that affect all three nationalities. This piece reflects on parochial attitudes more generally and on their specific impact on international trade. It proposes ways that international trade professors may help address these parochial attitudes in the classroom so that students may understand that they are part of a larger regional network sharing in common interests.
