The London Summer Program

The Summer program in London is open to Wake Forest law students, as well as law students from other U.S. law schools.

Wake Forest has had a summer program in London since 1981. The summer program runs for four weeks, typically from late May to mid-June. The summer 2014 dates are  May 26 to June 18, 2014. The course(s) offered are fully comprehensible to students who have completed their first year of law school. The London program offers significant opportunities to explore our common law heritage in London and other locations in England.

Classes are conducted in the Worrell House, which is owned by Wake Forest University, and is also where most students live. It is located near Hampstead in north London.  The program also includes visits to London courts and government buildings, and introduces students to English lawyers, jurists, and academics. In the past, the program has also included day trips to Oxford and Cambridge where noted English academics have addressed our students. It is our intent to include the same day trips this year.  The classes travel together on the field trips.

Most of the students, up to 14, will live in Worrell House. If there are not enough spaces in Worrell House to accommodate everyone, then Wake Forest will assist students who need to find housing.  Such housing, if needed, will be a convenient distance from Worrell House but may involve some public transportation. Typically, the program enrolls 20-25 students.
