Web Legal Education International Summer Schools

I had some publicity about these law summer schools recently – locations include: India, Switzerland and New York, USA. Please be aware there is a significant cost involved.

Several City students were based at Cardozo Law School last year here’s what one of them had to say:

“I did the summer intensive programme on US Law at Cardozo last year in July. I’d highly recommend it to anyone willing to experience something different. We got to learn about the US constitutional law as well as other areas of law as it works in the US system. The classes used to be very interactive and it was enjoyable learning and exchanging views on different areas of law with the excellent and friendly tutors in a comfortable environment.

We used to have activities outside the classes on the weekends and on the tuesday evenings. In those trips we were taken to witness a court hearing, visited a law firm, went to the UN headquarters, had an audio tour at the Ground Zero where the Twin Towers used to be situated, went to the Statue of Liberty Island & the Ellis Island, went for a baseball match and also watched a theatre at the Broadway. Most evenings used to be free so we could do whatever we wanted to, rest, shop, eat(food there was delicious), go for a movie, visit some known places including the Empire State building or just roam around at the Times Square.

In the last two days, we did a mini intensive trial advocacy programme. I personally got to learn a lot from that and also thoroughly enjoyed it. At the end we were all certified following a closing dinner. Overall, it has been an incredible experience being there doing a law related programme in an amazing city like New York at a lovely Law school right on 5th Avenue. It has truly been an experience of a lifetime.”
