The Skype Assignment
Spring Semester 2008

In Spring 2008, the "Public Health Emergency Law: Domestic and International" seminar was offered at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago and, in an intense, condensed version, at the Masaryk University Faculty of Law (MUFL) in Brno, Czech Republic. The seminar is taught by Judith W. Munson, Adjunct Professor at John Marshall and Visiting Lecturer at MUFL. The students in the John Marshall class are paired with students in the MUFL class in order to engage in this transatlantic assignment which is facilitated by use of SKYPE. The class in Brno is taught during the week when the John Marshall is on Spring Break.
