Students who will have completed at least one academic year in good standing at an ABA-accredited law school prior to June 30, 2014, may apply. Graduate students in law-related fields will be considered for admission on an individual basis.
An applicant from a law school other than The Ohio State University should submit an application and a written statement from the dean or other appropriate official at his or her law school, certifying that the applicant is in good academic standing. The statement also should indicate that the applicant’s law school will accept the credit earned from the University of Oxford-The Ohio State University 2014 Summer Law Program. (If your school will not accept credit, please contact the program administrator before applying).
The application and written statement should be sent to the program administrator: Assistant Dean Laura Fernandez, University of Oxford-The Ohio State University Summer Law Program, Moritz College of Law, 55 W. 12th Ave., Columbus, Ohio, 43210.
A deposit of $300 (check or money order payable to The Ohio State University) is due with the application and will be applied to the application and administration fee. One-hundred dollars ($100) of the deposit is refundable if a student withdraws from the program by March 15. Otherwise, the $300 deposit is refundable only if a student is not admitted into the program or if the program is cancelled.
Total enrollment in the program is limited, and eligible applicants will be admitted into the program on a first-come-first-served basis; so applications should be made as early as possible. It is strongly recommended that all applications be made on or before March 1. Total program costs must be paid in full by May 30. Except in the event of program cancellation, amounts paid for the balance of program costs are not refundable.
The Ohio State University reserves the right to cancel this program in the event of underenrollment or other compelling circumstances that prevent the program from being held. All fees will be immediately returned in the event of cancellation.
While participating in an Ohio State study abroad program, students are required to maintain their primary insurance coverage. As part of the program, students also receive supplemental insurance through HTH Worldwide Services for the duration of their study abroad program. This insurance is provided as a part of the Study Abroad Program Fee and supplements a student’s current health insurance. Students will receive a summary of benefits in their acceptance packet and an insurance card at orientation.
