MSU Law Announces New Study Abroad Programs - England and Croatia
East Lansing, MI – Michigan State University College of Law recently added two new Study Abroad programs to its portfolio of offerings—the 21st Century Law Practice Summer Program in London, England, and the Intellectual Property Summer Institute in Rijeka and Dubrovnik, Croatia.
The 21st Century Law Practice Summer Program in London is a first-of-its-kind, intensive study of technology, innovation, regulation, entrepreneurship, and the international legal marketplace. With the deregulation of lawyers in the United Kingdom and the outgrowth of alternative legal services delivery models, London is poised to become the global leader in the legal services market. The program will educate students about these new delivery models and help prepare them for the technology-infused law jobs of the 21st century. The program, which is co-sponsored by the Westminster University School of Law, will be held June 17 through July 3, 2012. Applications are due March 25, 2012.
The Intellectual Property (IP) Summer Institute offers an intensive study of intellectual property and cyberlaw from an international perspective. Building on MSU Law’s nationally recognized Intellectual Property, Information & Communications Law Program, the Institute attracts leading scholars and practitioners to examine cutting-edge issues of particular importance to countries such as Croatia with integrating economies and newly developed intellectual property regimes. Both American and Croatian students participate in this unique multicultural educational experience. The Institute, which is co-sponsored by the University of Rijeka, will be held June 18 to July 13, 2012. Applications are due April 1, 2012.
MSU Law also offers study abroad programs in Ottawa, Canada (May 18 to June 29, 2012); Kyoto, Japan (May 14 to June 12, 2012); and Bialystok, Poland (July 1 to 27, 2012).
