You've heard it all before: globalization is unstoppable; McDonald's is on the rise; the world is getting smaller. But what to do about it?

In this day and age, working on cross-border transactions or with international clients and colleagues is the norm, not the exception. Professor Preston Torbert (Baker & McKenzie) and Robert Verigan (Sidley Austin) have years and, literally, "worlds" of experience between them. Come and hear about their practice and get some practical tips for success.

Generously sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Students as part of Diversity Month.

This program qualifies for 10 Keystone Points from the Managing and Building Your Career category.
