Global Law Seminar
The seminar is a service-learning course designed to provide students with the opportunity to explore a developing country's legal system as well as serve its community.
This seminar focuses on a different country each year and consists of a semester-long class and a required field study and service component over spring break. Past countries of study have included Tanzania, India, Thailand, South Africa, and Turkey. This unique international and comparative learning experience is designed to be student organized and led. Students, in consultation with and under the supervision of faculty, develop curricula, lead class discussions, handle administrative details, organize the field study and service aspects of the course, develop group research proposals, plan and participate in in-country field study and service, and produce scholarly papers, several of which have been published.
