The Tulane Summer School at McGill University Faculty of Law, in association with Albany Law School, is a unique venture in North American legal education. The program originated with the efforts of the Institutes of Comparative Law at Tulane and McGill. It responds to the professional educational needs created by NAFTA and the globalization of financial and economic markets for training in trans-border law and legal practice. Indeed, the primary goal of the summer school is to provide registrants with a systematic and integrated program in international commercial lawyering.
The principal subject areas covered in the 1997 session are: international trade, NAFTA, international conflict of laws, comparative labor law, trans-border litigation, international commercial arbitration, and international human rights. An orientation program will be held on Wednesday, July 2-the first day of the summer school program. Registrants will be invited to a lecture and a lunch and will be given a general introduction to the curriculum, the university, and the city. Course materials will be supplied and are included in the tuition fee. Courses will be held at the law faculty building, Chancellor Day Hall, 3664 Peel Street, on the McGill University campus.
Courses: Eight courses will be offered, all dealing with international business and trans-border lawyering dispute resolution. Students may take up to 6 credit hours
Other fees: Housing
Admission requirements: Letter of good standing from your current law school
Application deadline: May 2, but will be accepted as long as the program remains open
