Following their overseas internships, students at Pacific McGeorge participate in the innovative Post-Internship Intercultural Legal Competence Workshop. In this workshop, students reflect upon their experiences through discussions that follow a detailed outline of topics for observation and reflection provided to the students before they left for their internships. This outline is available as an Appendix to the Report Regarding the 2011 Pacific McGeorge Workshop on Promoting Intercultural Legal Competence (The"Tahoe II" Conference).
