Abstract:     
Most countries educate lawyers in undergraduate institutions. But there is a trend afoot internationally, including in South Korea, to create postgraduate law programs; and some of these programs teach U.S. law, with the teaching done sometimes in English. To remain relevant and competitive, undergraduate law programs should consider clinical programs and teaching methods that ready students for the global legal market. Indeed, there is already a trend toward creation of legal clinics in undergraduate programs. Those without clinics therefore must consider creating clinical programs and, at the very least, incorporating teaching methods, such as those used in clinics, to ready students for the legal market.
