Nice Study Abroad Program is Underway

July 3, 2014

40 TJSL students and four faculty members are in Nice, France participating in the Summer Study Abroad Program.

Thomas Jefferson School of Law, in cooperation with the Faculté de Droit de l’Université de Nice, presents a four week, ABA approved, International and Comparative Law Summer Study Abroad Program in Nice, France. While this is a seven-year old program under the sponsorship of Thomas Jefferson School of Law, this summer abroad program continues the same Nice Summer Abroad Program that was founded and directed by Professor Susan Tiefenbrun 24 years ago.

Classes are held at the University of Nice School of Law. Centrally located in the south of France on the banks of the Mediterranean Sea, the University of Nice School of Law offers an ideal environment for learning international and comparative law in a city that is both beautiful and rich in European culture and history. In the Nice Program, American students study international law together with students from Europe and all parts of the world in a truly international atmosphere. The program is designed to encourage students to exchange ideas and explore cultural differences that influence international legal transactions. The student body is drawn from law schools across the United States and the world. The participation of European students from the University of Nice School of Law in each of the four courses offered is an important feature of this program.

Nice Program activities include a day in the French court, a Brown-bag Luncheon Lecture Series featuring distinguished judges, law professors and practitioners of international law, a French class offered for free to all students, a Welcome Reception, an Orientation, and a Goodbye Party for students and faculty, and other events.

The 2014 Nice Study Abroad Program runs from June 21 – July 18.
