The Vienna Summer Program

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

This year’s program runs for approximately four weeks, from July 6 to July 30, 2015, and the courses offered are fully comprehensible to students who have completed their first year of law school. All classes are taught in English at the University of Vienna and some introduction to civil law and EU law will be provided, as needed.

The Vienna summer program builds upon the very strong relationship between the Wake Forest School of Law and the University of Vienna. English-speaking Austrian students (and students from other European countries who attend the University of Vienna) enroll in classes and participate in all aspects of the program. Moreover, professors from the University of Vienna participate in the teaching of the classes, along with various guest lecturers.

Since classes are held four days out of a week, there is ample time to enjoy Vienna, as well as other locations in Austria, and cities and countries nearby, such as Budapest, Prague, Bratislava, and Ljubljana. Program field trips in the past have included visits to the Vienna Bar, the Supreme Court of Austria, a steel plant, a wind farm, a hospital, and other sites around Vienna, all according to the content of the courses taught.
