Legal education is transnationalizing. The legal classroom is globalizing, in that a university’s classroom is not defined by walls but is now mobile through technology and international university affiliations. The legal classroom itself is globalized, composed of local and international students. To meet the demands of a global economy and the subsequent globalization of the legal profession, law faculties have been required to transnationalize their legal education, teaching a mix of domestic law, the law of foreign jurisdictions and the growing streams of international law. This article examines the transnational legal education system through a comparative study of Japan and Australia. In Japan, legal education at Osaka University will be compared to the University of Sydney and Monash University in Australia.
