King Hall Kicks Off 2016 International Program Summer Courses

For more than 25 years, the UC Davis School of Law International Law Program has hosted lawyers, judges, prosecutors, and other legal professionals from around the world for high-level education and training in U.S. and international law. Starting this month, the 2016 season brings with it a variety of open enrollment courses, beginning in late June with the Licensing Academy in Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer and continuing through English for Legal Professionals and Orientation in U.S.A. Law, and ending in mid-August with the Specialized Program on the Global Trading System.

In addition to open enrollment students, summer brings our part-time International Commercial Law (ICL) LL.M. students to campus. These LL.M.s participate in some of the above courses as well as other coursework open exclusively to ICL LL.M. students. This innovative, interwoven set of degree and non-degree programs continues to grow, with the latest addition, the International Comparative Environmental Law Seminar, now offered in Como, Italy each May.

King Hall also welcomes a very special group of first-degree and graduate law students from China University of Political Science and Law for a four-week program this summer.

Beth Greenwood, Associate Dean of International Programs, notes that "summer 2016 will bring with it one of the most diverse student groups we have ever welcomed, with students coming from more than 25 countries around the world to connect, share ideas, and grow as professionals and people. We couldn't be more thrilled as we prepare for the 27th edition of the International Programs at UC Davis School of Law."

In addition to the summer programs, the International Programs administers the growing J.D. Exchange and Visiting Scholars Programs, and the academic year LL.M., which expects significant growth in class size and diversity for the incoming class of 2017.
