LawWithoutWalls™ - a Unique Opportunity for Collaboration Across Institutions and Countries

LawWithoutWalls is a collaborative academic model led by Professor Michele DeStefano. It brings together students, faculty, practitioners, and entrepreneurs from around the country and the world to explore innovation in legal education and practice.

LawWithoutWalls is motivated by a desire to help those engaged in the education and practice of law to realize the impact our changing world is having upon our shared legal enterprise and to embrace that change to create a resonant, efficient, and sustainable future.

LawWithoutWalls is an exciting and unique opportunity for students to collaborate across institutions and countries, gain business, entrepreneurial, investigative research, and team building skills and, more than that, invaluable experience and insight into the world of law and business.

Students from law schools around the world are paired up to conduct investigative research on an assigned topic to identify a problem in legal education or practice.

Above all else, LawWithoutWalls engages those with a stake in Law's future and provides them with a powerful vehicle for innovation and change.
