Penn State Law is offering a summer program for international lawyers
Penn Law School is running an Intensive Introduction to US Law & Advocacy in Istanbul, Turkey this summer. This programme is suitable for legal practitioners and business executives from around the world, and will be taught by Penn State Law faculty members.
The Dean of Penn State Law, Phil McConnaughay, says, “The global demand for practitioners with a fundamental understanding of American law especially as it relates to international commerce is growing exponentially. Yeditepe University is the ideal place to conduct this program because of the importance of Istanbul as a cultural, economic, and financial centre of both Europe and Asia.”
Participants can enrol in the full three-week program or select either of the two modules.
The Legal English Immersion and Introduction to US Legal System and Case Analysis course runs from Sunday 24th June to Friday 29th June. The second module runs from Monday 2nd July 2 to Friday 13th July and covers topics in US Law and Advocacy, Mediation, and Arbitration.
Director of Graduate and International Programs at Penn State Law, Professor Karen Bysiewicz, says, “We also think of the program as a stepping stone for students who may be interested in doing an LLM degree in the US.”
Program participants who earn a certificate of completion in the summer program in Istanbul will receive tuition credit toward Penn State Law LLM program tuition.
