Law Students Welcome To Information Session Regarding Katz Graduate School of Business Global Research Practicums in Spring 2014 Semester

Law students are welcome to this information session Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 5:15 p.m. in Room 117 of Mervis Hall (located behind the Law School and Posvar Hall on Bouquet Street) from the Katz Graduate School of Business regarding three global research practicums that will take place in the Spring 2014 Semester. There are three travel opportunities for students during Spring Break 2014 (Mar. 7-16, 2014): Germany and the Netherlands, India, and Israel. Law students may take particular interest in the Israel trip as it is being lead by Pitt Law Patent Law Adjunct Professor Elliot Dater, and Katz Clinical Assistant Professor of Business Administration Professor Paul Harper. Law students can build their global business and law experience by completing this Global Research Practicum in Israel. The 3-credit course features a one-week trip to Israel, a country known as a "startup nation" for its astounding number of new technology startups. 

The 2014 Israel Global Research Practicum will:

  • Increase your understanding of international business and law through immersion activities and experience-based learning.
  • Let you interact with groups of business leaders, government officials, and university professors.
  • Grow your cultural understanding of the different ethnic groups in the Middle East.

Professor Dater previously spent seven years practicing law in Tel Aviv, Israel, representing emerging growth companies in the technology, medical device, and life sciences industries. Read more about his and Professor Harper's work in Israel.
