The Vienna Summer Program
July 1-July 25, 2013
The Summer program in Vienna is open to Wake Forest law students, as well as law students from other U.S. law schools.
This program runs for approximately four weeks, typically during the month of July. The 2013 program will be from July 1-July 25, 2013. The mandatory date of arrival is Saturday, June 29, 2013. One comparative law course is offered in 2013 for three credit hours. Some introduction to civil law and EU law will be provided, as needed. Classes are taught at the University of Vienna. The course will be fully comprehensible to students who have completed their first year of law school.
The Vienna summer program builds upon strong relationships 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 take place only four days out of a week, there will be 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 sites around Vienna — all according to the content of the courses taught.
