German stipend supported summer program for 2010
There is a new stipend-supported summer program in Freiburg Germany for law students from the US, Canada and the UK. Detailed information is available at: http://www.daad.org/page/law . The DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) Summer Law School offers the unique opportunity to receive intensive legal training at the University of Freiburg, which hosts one of the most prestigious law faculties in Germany. After the one-week seminar, you will spend about three weeks as an intern at a German law firm, court or other legal institution. The Law Summer School placements provide students with the opportunity to work in an international firm or organization, to learn about the daily life of a lawyer, consultant or judge, and to gain confidence in an international environment. Last but not least, the internships are a source of mutual cultural and professional enrichment for both the interns and their hosts.
The program will start on June 14, 2010 with a one-week seminar series on German and European law in Freiburg. After that, students start their individual internships at institutions of their choice. Eligibility Requirements: To apply for a law internship you must be a law student enrolled at a university in the US or Canada at the time of the internship. Applicants must prove that they have student status at the time of the internship. German language skills are welcomed but are not necessary. DAAD will provide a scholarship of ˆ650 for the duration of the Summer School. Furthermore, each scholarship holder will receive a lump sum for international travel expenses and a five-day travel card for German Railways. DAAD will also provide health insurance and accident and personal/private liability insurance.
