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. 71 students from 24 U.S. and Canadian law schools attended the 2013 Institute; the Institute has enrolled over 1100 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 20 to July 6, 2014 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 7 to August 8) program for three additional credits at Korean courts, government ministries, multinational corporations, human-rights organizations, and law firms.
