An IU School of Law-Indianapolis professor recently held the European debut of his guidebook to U.S. law schools written specifically for international students.

Professor George E. Edward’s new book, LL.M. Roadmap: An International Student’s Guide to U.S. Law School Programs, debuted in Paris, France, on Sept. 26, 2011. Edwards held the European debut during the Master of Laws (LL.M.) Workshop he conducted in Paris. The Franco-American Commission that hosts Fulbright France sponsored the workshop.

Aspen /Wolters Kluwer Law and Business released LL.M. Roadmap this fall. The book is a comprehensive guide to assist students from around the world in choosing, applying to, and succeeding in an American LL.M. program.

LL.M. Roadmap lists, describes and discusses 218 criteria for choosing the “best” LL.M. program. Professor Edwards says, “I encourage all LL.M. applicants to read through the list of 218 criteria for choosing a school or LL.M. program, decide which criteria are important to them as a student, and choose a school they believe is reasonably likely to satisfy or meet those criteria. “

Professor Edwards has presented on the topic of U.S. Legal Education for international students and other international issues in more than two dozen countries. He has presented the new book at events around the world, including the kickoff of its release held at his alma mater, the Harvard Law School, in early September.

Edwards serves as the Carl M. Gray Professor of Law and founding director of the Program in International Human Rights Law (PIHRL) at IU School of Law–Indianapolis. PIHRL is accredited with a special consultative status to the United Nations Economic and Social Council.

The law professor is also the founding director of the Overseas Summer International Human Rights Law Internship of IU Law-Indianapolis. Since Edwards created the internship program in 1997, students from the IU School of Law-Indianapolis’s J.D. and L.L.M. programs had held at least 168 placements worldwide as international human rights law interns.
