Penn State Law is offering an intensive US law programme in Istanbul
Penn State University Dickinson School of Law is running a four-week Intensive Introduction to American Law programme at the Yeditepe Faculty of Law in Istanbul, Turkey this summer. This programme is for lawyers and business executives, and will run from Saturday 2nd July to Friday 29th July 2011.
The Intensive Introduction to American Law programme will provide legal and business practitioners from around the world with an overview of American law as it operates in the global business environment. It will be taught by Penn State University Dickinson School of Law professors, who are known globally for their expertise in antitrust, arbitration, contracts, international choice of law, the US regulation of international business, property, advocacy, and writing. There are eight different classes taught over two, two-week semesters.
Philip J. McConnaughay, Dean of Penn State University Dickinson School of Law, 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 programme because of the importance of Istanbul as a cultural, economic, and financial center of both Europe and Asia.”
Karen Bysiewicz, Director of Graduate and International Programmes at Penn State Law adds, “We also think of the programme as a stepping stone for students who may be interested in doing a master of laws degree in the US.”
Programme participants who go on to enroll in Penn State’s LLM programme will receive a full credit of their $4,200 summer program tuition toward their Penn State Law LLM.
