RWU Law Adds Exciting New Summer Study Abroad Option

Posted by David Logan on 12/01/2011 at 09:39 AM

For over a decade now, we have offered our students a unique option for summer studies: our Program in London, run by English Barrister Robert Webster, is a unique opportunity for experiential learning which places our students in the chambers of leading barristers and judges.

Last year we offered options to study in China and Argentina, as part of a consortium headed by Stetson Law School.  Now I am delighted to announce that we are expanding further: RWU Law students now can opt into classes in The Hague (Netherlands) and Lausannne (Switzerland).  These new possibilities are especially interesting because they will take advantage of distinctive RWU faculty expertise: the teachers will be our own Professor John Chung (who served at the United Nations in Geneva before joining our faculty) and Peter Margulies, a nationally-known expert on human rights, while RWU Prof. Louise Teitz will provide unique opportunities via her current diplomatic posting at the Hague.

This gives us a remarkable array of study abroad options so that our students can learn law, but also get a chance to sample the local culture and history, as the pics below show.
