Spain: Summer Semester in Madrid
SLU LAW's ABA-approved Summer Law Program in Madrid offers six weeks of enriching, rewarding comparative and international law education in one of the most exciting, historical and culturally rich cities in the world. Students can earn up to six credit hours in comparative and international law courses taught by Spanish and American professors. Classroom instruction is in English, and there are no classes on Fridays. The anticipated enrollment is usually around twenty-two students. The program includes visits to Spain's Constitutional and Supreme Courts. In addition to taking up to six credit hours, students may take a non-credit introductory Spanish class at no additional cost.
Madrid offers students vibrant nightlife, excellent restaurants and world- renowned museums. Day trips can easily be made to Toledo, Segovia, Avila and Salamanca, all jewels of Spanish culture and history. For those students who wish to expand their travels even further, weekend trips to exciting nearby destinations outside of Spain, such as Lisbon (Portugal), Paris, Nice, and Lyon (France) are also popular and easy to get to by train or a short flight. And Morocco is next door!
Program courses are held on Saint Louis University's Madrid campus, located in the northwest section of Madrid near many other universities and within a 20-minute subway ride to the city's historical center.
