238: Comparative Law Seminar: Chile

Credit Hours



Instructor permission required



This seminar will introduce students to comparative legal research in the context of Chile.  Each student selects a topic on which to do comparative research.  Classroom sessions will introduce students to the civil law tradition, the basis of law in Chile.  Through our sister law school in Chile, Universidad Alberto Hurtado, students spend the week of spring break in Santiago experiencing the Chilean legal system and conducting interviews with individuals who are expert in the area in which they are researching.  Students make a classroom presentation and write a paper on their topic.
