Position Summary:

In an increasingly global world, practical experience and knowledge of international law and the legal systems and cultures of other nations are indispensable for American lawyers, legal scholars, and law students alike. In addition to studying international law, faculty and students at Carolina Law seek to immerse themselves in the intellectual, social, educational environment and cultures of other countries. A global mindset gives members of our community the tools, awareness and understanding to navigate legal system and cultural differences across borders. Learning how to think globally provides foundational knowledge our students will need for a dynamic future.

The Director will provide continual programmatic feedback to the Associate Dean for External Relations and Careers through data collection and reporting and will respond to concerns and/or problems in an efficient and timely manner.

The Director will also be responsible for the creation of agendas, presentations, and meetings with key UNC Law stakeholders as directed by the Associate Dean for External Relations and Careers.
