Professor Warner Extends International Bankruptcy Course Across NAFTA

The innovative International Bankruptcy course, hosted at St. John’s and directed by Professor G. Ray Warner, reached an important milestone this week when Western Law, a public law school in Ontario Canada, agreed to join the course.

This course was already very unusual in that it involved 8 to 10 law schools annually that were linked together through audio and video over the internet in a shared real-time class. The course is sponsored and generously supported by the American College of Bankruptcy, which provides the funding needed to bring the world’s leading experts in as lecturers. The internet bridge allows multiple schools to share the lectures and class discussions. A Mexican law school, Instituto Tecnológico Autónomo de México (ITAM), was already a participating school. With the addition of a Canadian law school, the course is now shared by law schools in all three NAFTA countries, probably a first in legal education.
