The Summer Law Programmes 2021 takes place between 6 July and 27 August and comprises of a four week programme which is specially designed for international law students.
The Summer Law Programmes 2021 offers students worldwide the chance to experience British legal education at one of the world’s top law schools. This summer you can take part in this opportunity by applying through the student portal. The deadline for applications is Monday, 26 April 2021 at 11:59 pm (BST).
If you are chosen to participate in the Summer Law Programmes 2021, you will have access to an online classroom and resources from our academic staff who will teach you about a range of key legal topics. You will also be able to network with other students who are taking part in this global experience.
Introduction to US Law
The University of Cambridge will offer the online course Introduction to US Law from 1 July – 16 July 2021. The four-week programme is worth £2,500, and classes will last for 4-5 hours per day. This course is part of the University’s Law Faculty Summer Programme.
This course aims to give students an introduction to the American legal system as a basis for understanding international law in general and transnational legal conflicts more specifically. At the end, participants will be awarded with a certificate of achievement if they complete all requirements successfully.
Public International Law & Human Rights
International law is the set of rules generally regarded and accepted as binding in relations between states and between nations. It serves as a framework for the practice of stable and organized international relations. International law differs from state-based legal systems in that it is primarily applicable to countries rather than to private citizens. National law may become international law when treaties delegate national jurisdiction to supranational tribunals such as the European Court of Human Rights or the International Criminal Court. Treaties such as the Geneva Conventions may require national law to conform to respective parts.
Much of international law is consent-based governance, this means that a state member of the international community is not obliged to abide by this type of international law, unless it has expressly consented to a particular course of conduct. This is an issue of state sovereignty. However, other aspects of international law are not consent-based but still are obligatory upon state and non-state actors such as customary international law and peremptory norms (jus cogens). The term “international” means that it applies between nations; therefore, no two persons (no matter how big or small) may be able application in their dealings with each other without violating any one country’s laws because they both reside in different countries and can only be subject to one country’s laws at any given time.
US Law and the Profession
With summer internships in the UK, you’ll be exposed to many aspects of the legal profession. You’ll see how a law firm operates, work alongside lawyers and other support staff in various departments, attend client meetings and court hearings.
Lawyers are involved in every aspect of society. At Columbia Law School, there are over 900 graduates working as judicial clerks for federal judges around the country; there are also more than 100 alumni currently serving as general counsel for Fortune 500 corporations.
Many students dream of becoming lawyers. This is why Sarah Lawrence College offers a pre-law program designed to help them succeed by preparing them with rigorous training that will enable them to become effective attorneys when they enter law school; it also provides opportunities for real-world experience through internships with local organizations such as Legal Aid Society and Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law.
In addition to being an important part of society in general, Harvard Law School has been ranked among the top ten best schools by U.S News & World Report since 2006; it’s also one of only two US institutions that offer graduate degrees exclusively through distance education courses taught remotely or online (the other being Stanford University).
The NJ Short Course
The NJ Short Course has been running for over 20 years and is recognised as a leading course in EU Law. The course takes place every summer at St Anne’s College, Oxford.
Our LLM programme is taught over two terms from early October to late June. Each of the four individual courses is taught intensively over two weeks in the form of two-hour classes each day, followed by one-hour tutorials each week.
International Arbitration and Mediation for GDPR Compliance
Our International Arbitration and Mediation for GDPR Compliance course will help you understand the obligations created by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and how these can be enforced in international arbitration or mediation proceedings. The GDPR places an array of obligations on organizations, including those that process personal data but are not located within the EU. For example, Article 3(2) of the GDPR explicitly states that it applies to “the processing of personal data…by a controller or processor not established in the Union, where the processing activities are related to: (a) the offering of goods or services, irrespective of whether a payment of the data subject is required, to such data subjects in the Union; or (b) the monitoring of their behaviour as far as their behaviour takes place within the Union.” As a result, when offering goods or services in EU member states, any organization must make sure that it has ensured GDPR compliance.
The course has been designed specifically for non-EU based organizations that offer goods and services to consumers within EU member states and need to comply with their obligations under Articles 13–17 (information), Articles 19–22 (rights), Articles 27–39 (responsibilities), Article 44-47 (international transfers), and Article 49-50 (derogations).
Competence in Arbitration
Taught by leading practitioners from international law firms, this intensive two-week course covers the key issues and practical skills that are fundamental for acting as counsel or arbitrator in arbitration proceedings.
Dates: 18-29 July 2022
Requirements: A degree in law or a related subject; Practising lawyers/professionals who have completed their training contract may also apply.
