Welcome to Spring Semester! There are a number of
exciting events planned for this term. Here is a preview:
Summer Study in Augsburg, Germany
Chicago-Kent has partnered with the University of
Augsburg (Germany) and four other law schools to offer
a summer program in Augsburg Germany. For summer 2005,
the program will run from June 13th through July 24th,
and Chicago-Kent students can earn ABA credits for
such courses as Intro to European Law, Intro to the
European Legal System, German and American Competition
Law, Transnational Litigation, International Economic
Law. Go to www.thomas-moellers.de
for more information about the Summer Program (the
last link on the left side of the page).
Note that while the website says there are no tuition
fees, Chicago-Kent students will be required to pay
50% of the per credit hour charges associated with
any credits they wish to use toward their degrees.
Thus, if you decide to take 2 courses at Augsburg
for 4 credits, you will have to pay Chicago-Kent for
2 credits but will have 4 credits toward your J.D.
degree. In addition, students are responsible for
all expenses associated with the program – living,
travel, housing, books, etc. We can fill up to eight
spots in this program – if there are more than 8 students
interested in going, we will hold an essay contest
to determine who will be selected to participate.
Interested? The Office of International Law and Policy
Development will hold an informational meeting on
Tuesday February 1, 2005 at 12, room 305, with a presentation
by Isabella Risini, an Augsburg student who is currently
studying at Chicago-Kent on exchange.
Interested in Doing Business in China?
On Thursday February 10 at 12 in room 305 come hear
Attorney May Hao, from, the MayGlobe Law Firm speak
about her experiences working in the US and China.
Brown bag your lunch – we will provide drinks. RSVP
