A touring delegation of faculty members from The University of Jordan learned more about America’s style of legal education from Catholic University law school Professor Veryl Miles and fellow panelists during a Nov. 18 presentation in Washington, D.C.
The discussion was conducted at the offices of the American Bar Association in support of the ABA’s Rule of Law Initiative. The aim of the tour is for the visiting Jordanians to learn more about legal education and the various organizations that support it in the United States, including entities such as the ABA Section on Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, and the Association of American Law Schools.
Miles, a former dean of The Columbus School of Law, was a terrific resource for the audience, drawing upon her in-depth knowledge of legal education to share with the group. Miles has served as the deputy director of the Association of American Law Schools and as a member of the Accreditation Committee of the Section on Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar; she is also currently serving as a member of the Section’s Standards Review Committee.
The visitors from The University of Jordan have toured many top U.S. law schools on their fact-finding trip, including those of Yale, Columbia, Cardoza, Harvard and Georgetown.
