The project will be the creation of core chapters of a book/online resource that provides practicing lawyers with an overview of the legal systems and legal professions in foreign countries. Depending upon student interest and the project scope defined by the class, countries likely to be included are Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South African ("BRICS" countries). Ideally, there will be sufficient time and resources to expand the scope of the project to include additional foreign jurisdictions.
- three classes dedicated to team theory and an assessment of preferred team roles;
- six classes introducing project management concepts;
- nine weeks/27 classes for planning, scheduling, executing, and controlling of the Terralex project;
- closing out the projects, including lessons learned and creating organization process assets, which in this course/project will be research protocols for future students of the course.
- short quizzes or essays testing their knowlege of formal principles of project management;
- internal memoranda documenting aspects of the project;
- actual book chapters created by students;
- peer performance evaluations;
- their project log created through their use of time/billing software used in actual law firms; and
- a self-evaluation essay.
