This chapter explores intercultural competency as a critical skill for law students, using Birmingham City University’s American Legal Practice module as a case study. Part I outlines the American Legal Practice model for context. Part II links culture and intercultural competence with legal education. Part III introduces strategies to foster students' intercultural competency, categorised as student-led, module design, and institutional approaches. Infused with examples and reflections from American Legal Practice, the chapter offers educators practical insights for applying this field of research.
