The close interaction of law students and law faculty from the University of Lund and other international law faculties distinguishes Suffolk’s program from most other foreign summer law programs and offers students an excellent opportunity to learn about different legal cultures.
This week we welcome four student participants from the 2011 program to discuss their experiences in Lund. Next summer’s program will be held from June 14 to July 10, 2012. Learn more at http://law.suffolk.edu/academic/abroad.cfm.
