Englar, Grant quoted in Business Journal story on international law

A Feb. 8 story in the Triad Business Journal about international law and business includes quotes from two law school faculty members.

John Englar, distinguished practitioner in residence, and Helen Grant, professor of law, were interviewed by Business Journal reporter Michelle Cater Rash for the story. Englar says a grasp of international business and culture is crucial for today’s law students.

“If lawyers are intending to go into business-related fields of law, it’s critical they be exposed to international business and aspects of international culture to be successful in the field,” Englar says in the story.

Grant says students are highly motivated to learn about international law and cultures different from their own.

“Students realize they don’t just live in the U.S. It’s a global world and a global economy,” Grant says.
