Our summer "open enrollment" programs are available to anyone from the legal profession interested in continuing his or her legal education. This summer marks the 30th anniversary of the International Law Programs. Throughout the years, we have offered attorneys, judges, pre-LL.M. students and legal professionals from around the world the opportunity to study in our summer programs at the School of Law, University of California, Davis. The following are this summer's highlights:

  • The Orientation in U.S.A. Law (July 7-August 3, 2019) provides an excellent four-week overview of the U.S. legal system. Over past years, thousands of participants from 50 countries have taken part in this program.

  • The two-week Global Trading System (August 4-August 17, 2019) is designed for knowledgeable practitioners who wish to gain a working familiarity with the global trading system — including international trade, commerce, and investments as well as international dispute resolution. The program consists of more than 50 hours of lectures, seminars, and practicum. The course is open to anyone from the legal or business community; no admissions qualifications or prerequisites are required, although a working knowledge of the English language is recommended, as all lectures are conducted in English.

  • Also, look for Specialized One-Week Intensive Seminars in Intellectual Property, Comparative Law, and Antitrust (July 7 - August 3, 2019). Check back soon--schedule, faculty and more information are coming!
