Summer Law Program in Session
Observing trials involving organized crime and terrorism at the National Court of Spain. touring the Spanish Constitutional Court to learn about its history and proceedings and experiencing the art of Goya and Velazquez at the world-renowned Prado Museum, followed by a night savoring the cuisine at authentic Spanish restaurants are just a few of the many highlights of Saint Louis University's ABA-approved summer law program in Madrid.
“The summer program in Madrid builds on the Center for International and Comparative Law’s strong focus by offering law courses taught by Spanish legal scholars and SLU LAW professors,” said program director Stephen Thaman, J.D., a renowned expert on comparative criminal law and procedure and co-director of the center. “The program offers up to six hours of excellent courses in comparative and international law in one of Europe's most dynamic centers of art and culture.”
Now in its 12th year, the six-week program, which runs May 19-June 26, allows SLU and other American law students to experience Spanish culture and history while expanding their knowledge of international and comparative law.
