Tulane Law School will launch a new summer abroad program for its Institute of Comparative Law at the University of Toronto. Law students from Tulane and other American law schools will study comparative constitutional law and civil rights law taught by Tulane Professors Wendy Brown Scott, Susan Krinsky, and Catherine Hancock, and by four distinguished members of the University of Toronto Law Faculty. The University of Toronto is the third largest public university in North America. The first session runs from June 1-15 and the second session runs from June 16-30, 2004.
Courses at this summer's Toronto program will include: Comparative Constitutional Equality Law; Comparative Constitutional Law: Dilemmas of Judicial Activism; International Environmental Law; Comparative Criminal Procedure; The Constitutional State; Corrective Justice in a Comparative Context; Comparative Health Law; and Comparative Indigenous Law. Special lectures for students will be provided by members of the bench and bar of Toronto. Housing for students has been arranged on the Victoria campus, which is the largest academic unit of the University of Toronto.
The University of Toronto campus is full of courtyards, quadrangles, parks, and noteworthy architecture, and the University District is bounded by downtown neighborhoods where upscale shopping, clubs, and residential life mix easily together. Ten music and food festivals occur in June in Toronto, and field trips for students are planned for visits to the Ontario Parliament, the Ontario Court of Appeal, the Toronto Islands, the Royal Ontario Museum, and the Stratford Festival of Canada, which is the the largest repertory theatre company in North America.
