Study Abroad (2009-2010)
"I strongly suggest that anyone who has an interest in European law attend this program. The exposure/knowledge you gain from sitting in the actual courtroom and meeting different barristers and judges is invaluable. They say the only way to lean another legal system is to embrace the culture, and this program provides that opportunity."
"The London trip was excellent. It was eye-opening and intriguing to see how different the English and American legal systems are, despite their common source. Working with a barrister allowed me to see first-hand how law is practiced in England. The trip was an extraordinary and invaluable experience, and I would recommend it to anyone"
"Having the experience of being a pupil to a barrister was eye opening. Witnessing the prosecution and defenses argue their cases and more interestingly how they engage each other. I learned how the juries are treated in England as opposed to in America; they have a more active role."
