Madrid Summer Law Institute

About the Program

URJCThe Madrid Summer Law Institute offers an introduction to European Union law and international law subjects related to the United States and Europe, with a focus on Spain.

There are a limited number of spaces in the program. Classes may fill up. Early applicants will receive priority in enrollment.

In the summer of 2013, twenty-eight U.S. law students participated in the program. Twenty-three of these students were from UNM, one student was from the University of Utah, one student was from Lewis & Clark, one student was from Texas Wesleyan, one student was from Barry University, and one student was from the University of Texas. In addition, five Spanish law students participated in the program. All were from the Universidad Rey Juan Carlos.

Students from all over the world are recruited for the Madrid Summer Law Institute. While most of the available spaces are reserved for law students, a small number of graduate students in other related disciplines and practicing lawyers may also be accepted into the program. All students must have a strong command of the English language to participate in the program.

Students need to arrange their own transportation to Madrid. The first scheduled event of the program is a mandatory orientation meeting Sunday, June 1, 2014. The time and location of the orientation will be announced close to the start date of the program. Any student who misses the orientation will be disenrolled from the program.
