"The essential prerequisite for becoming a private international lawyer is a solid grounding in domestic law. Take as many business law courses as possible without regard to whether they have a domestic or international orientation. Knowing how transactions are structured, having the ability to draft documents, to negotiate effectively and to close a business deal-these do not vary whether you're practicing domestically or internationally." Before coming to King Hall, Hillman was general counsel for Star-Kist Foods, a job that took him throughout Southeast Asia, West Africa, Latin America, and Europe. After joining the UC Davis faculty in 1984, he evaluated Chinese law schools as a consultant for the World Bank and taught two semesters at the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing. He has also taught at New York University, Duke, Georgia, and Florida State. The job of the private international lawyer is neither easy nor glamorous, he said. "There are long hours on the road, negotiating in stressful environments without the support mechanisms you would have at home. On the other hand, there's a diversity about what you're doing that is not to be found in domestic practice. And your working environments are certainly different and stimulating."
