THINKING ABOUT THIS SUMMER?

How About a Semester Abroad in Denmark next year?

Chicago-Kent has an exchange agreement with the University of Copenhagen that permits our students to study at that school for a semester and earn credits that can be applied to your JD degree. The deadline for applying for their fall semester is April 1 2005, and the deadline for applying to go for Spring semester is October 1, 2005. The semester dates are Sept 1, 2005 – exams in December 2005, and February 1, 2006 – exams in May 2006. Currently, we have 2 Danish exchange students here at Chicago-Kent, and one 3L who was there this past fall, so if you are interested, contact Dean Lazar for more information!

The Summer Program runs from June 20 - July 19, 2005 and costs $3,700 which covers tuition and fees for 6 credits of coursework room, board, local transportation, and additional expenses.
