Tulane Law School's summer abroad programs are open to Tulane Law students and students from other U.S. and international law schools. Our 2013 programs reflect our more than 35 years’ experience running summer law programs abroad, beginning in 1973 in Grenoble, France. Long-established relationships with our partner universities and locations result from this experience designing and executing programs abroad. Over 7,000 law students from approximately 140 U.S. law schools have attended our programs, all of which are approved by the American Bar Association. Students from our host institutions and other schools abroad also participate in many of our programs, adding a valuable dimension to classroom discussions, as well as first-hand knowledge of local and regional attractions. Each program, with its own personal touch, fosters a deeper learning experience by immersing students in both the substance of their coursework and the culture of their host country.
In addition to interesting and well-taught courses, students can be confident that they will find well organized and professionally run programs that offer extra-curricular activities, living accommodations, internships, and faculty who will explore the surrounding culture with their students. Through the years, both U.S. and international prominent scholars, practitioners, and prestigious federal judges have highlighted our faculty. From the U.S. Supreme Court alone, these have included Justices Harry Blackmun, Stephen Breyer, Ruth Ginsburg, Antonin Scalia, and Chief Justice William Rehnquist. The Tulane summer abroad experience will not only add to your resume but also broaden your horizons, by providing networking opportunities and first hand perspectives into other cultures.
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
After careful consideration, we are suspending the Amsterdam program for the Summer of 2013. We will use the coming year to restructure the program, to design a summer program that will approach international human rights, and international criminal law from a practical perspective – including internships.

The Tulane Paris Institute Welcomes Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
With its roots deep in Napoleonic law, Tulane is particularly at home in the capital of France. The Paris program not only follows that tradition, but has created a new vocation: to train U.S. students and lawyers to understand the European Union and ready students for transnational practice. Join us next summer for lectures given by Justice Ginsburg, and a faculty of internationally renowned experts on French and European law.
|Starting in Beijing, introducing students to a broad range of topics of Chinese law, the program then switches gears in the Shanghai session to focus on issues lawyers face in doing business in and with China, uniquely combining traditional instruction with practical, skills-oriented exercises supervised by leading members of the Chinese bar specialized in international business and trade. Internship opportunities will be available to qualified students at the completion of the four week program.

Due to Greece’s strong legal and cultural maritime focus, the study of Admiralty, International Conventions and the Law of the Sea is particularly appropriate there.
