Abstract: This article argues that American LL.M. Programs should consider ways to help all foreign lawyers meet their goals of improved English, strong critical thinking and writing skills, and opportunities for work experience needed for global legal practice. In the course described here, using real-time and computer-assisted learning, the Professor and foreign-trained Teaching Assistants help Chinese students bridge this divide in a course that addresses the interaction of racial politics and the law.

Keywords: critical thinking, teaching, Chinese lawyers, English language, racial politics, law
