Lewis & Clark has a new association with an excellent program jointly offered by Washington University School of Law and Case Western Reserve University School of Law.

Taught by prominent experts in the field from Europe and the United States, including the former Chief Prosecutor of an International Criminal Tribunal, the Institute features six international and comparative law courses. The Summer Institute is accredited by the ABA, and is open to students in good standing at ABA-accredited U.S. law schools and at non-U.S. undergraduate or graduate law programs, as well as graduates of those institutions.

Students can enroll in two courses (one session) or three to four courses (both sessions), for a maximum of eight credits. Enrollment is limited to ensure small class sizes and intimate seminars with close interaction among students and faculty.
