Middle Eastern Women Receive American-Style Leadership Training
1 - 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

Knoll, who taught Taxation, said the women attended an abbreviated LL.M.-like program — but with no grades or exams, just projects and presentations to demonstrate understanding of the material. They covered as much ground as possible in a short time, learning the basics of American law, from civil procedure to torts to property, as well as taking courses in special subjects. These included Islamic Finance in the West and another course exploring Paul Robinson's work on designing a modern criminal code in the Maldives that incorporates Sharia, a body of law inspired by the Koran. They were also exposed to Penn's trademark interdisciplinary education when they joined their Wharton counterparts in the program, which ended in mid-April.
