Week of January 24, 2005
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.
