The Fordham-SKKU Summer Institute in International Law held in downtown Seoul, Korea, on Sungkyunkwan University's (SKKU) lush mountainside campus is a huge success. 141 students from 25 U.S. and Canadian law schools attended the 2012 Institute; the Institute has enrolled over 1000 students from 5 countries and 60 law schools since its inception in 2006. Students enroll in three or six credits. Students must enroll in one of 3 three-credit courses in international and comparative law subjects taught from June 24 to July 5, 2013 by distinguished faculty from Fordham Law School. Classroom instruction will be supplemented by field trips to legal institutions and cultural sites and a basic Korean language class (for non-Korean speakers).
After the academic portion of the program, students have the option of participating in the Institute's 5-week internship (July 8-August 9) program for three additional credits at Korean courts, the National Assembly, government ministries, multinational corporations, human-rights organizations, and law firms.
**To accommodate additional interested students, we have extended our deadline to April 15, 2013.
