Oxford Study Abroad
2013 Summer Law Program
July 1-Aug. 5, 2013
The University of Oxford-The Ohio State University Summer Law Program, one of the oldest overseas law programs in existence, will kick off its 26th year in July 2013. The program is limited to 65 participants.
The University of Oxford-The Ohio State University Summer Law Program offers students the unique opportunity to study with faculty from both the University of Oxford in England and The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law in the United States. Students will learn about the British and American legal systems through a combination of class work, guest lectures, and excursions in Oxford and London.
The program houses students in private rooms at St. Anne's College and provides them with full board – three meals a day, seven days a week. Participants can choose from among five different courses and earn up to six hours of credit toward their law degrees. Tuition costs are kept low for a study-abroad program of this scope, making our summer of study in Oxford an excellent value.
The University of Oxford was founded in the 12th century and is known worldwide as a premier institution of higher education. St. Anne's is one of Oxford's newest colleges and has an outstanding reputation for academic excellence. Its scenic grounds are located close to all of Oxford's other colleges and libraries, as well as the downtown shopping district.
The Moritz College of Law and the University of Oxford have teamed up to run the Summer Law Program since 1987, educating law students in a variety of comparative and international law topics. This year the program will offer courses in Comparative Legal Professions, Comparative Sentencing and Punishment, European Union Law, Comparative Election Law, and International and Comparative Climate Change Law.
