CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, January 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Professor Kim D. Chanbonpin, Director of the Lawyering Skills Program at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago, visited the La Universidad Nacional del Litoral (UNL) in Santa Fe, Argentina on December 4, and delivered lectures to the law school’s faculty about the U.S. Legal System.
“I was proud to represent John Marshall on my visit to the UNL campus,” Chanbonpin said. “I believe there is great potential for UNL and other law schools in Argentina to expand funding and support interactions between the U.S. and Latin America in general.”
John Marshall and the UNL have been building a relationship for quite some time through talks with John Marshall’s Center for International Law. Chanbonpin, who speaks Spanish, was invited to visit UNL and make two presentations at UNL’s law school, Facultad de Ciencias Jurídicas y Sociales. Her first presentation discussed American law schools and LL.M. programs available in the U.S. for international students, and her second presentation focused on the U.S. legal system and how it compares to Argentina.
“Argentina’s national constitution was modeled after the U.S. Constitution, and our legal systems share many similarities despite the some of the differences between the civil law and common law traditions. Our respective students could learn a lot from each other through comparative legal studies,” suggested Chanbonpin.
Chanbonpin joined the John Marshall faculty in 2008. She teaches Lawyering Skills, Gender Race and Class, Criminal Law, Torts, Spanish for Lawyers and National Security Law. She has also taught Introduction to the U.S. Legal System to LL.M. students in China's State Intellectual Property Office and at Masaryk University Faculty of Law in the Czech Republic.
Chanbonpin is currently serving as President of the Legal Writing Institute. She has also served on the Board of Governors for the Society of American Law Teachers. She received her bachelor's degree from the University of California at Berkeley, her J.D. from the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa, William S. Richardson School of Law and her LL.M. from Georgetown University Law Center.
