Students can enhance their worldview of the law by spending a summer semester at one of Valparaiso Law’s Study Abroad locations.
Students can enhance their worldview of the law by spending a summer semester at the Valparaiso University Cambridge Center in Cambridge, England. You’ll be taught by Valparaiso Law professors, distinguished alumni, guest lecturers from the host community. Past faculty have included United States Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Clarence Thomas, and Chief Justice William Rehnquist.
Led by scholars and practitioners from the United States, Chile, and Argentina, Summer Program students will examine legal, historical, and cultural approaches to human rights in Chile and Argentina. Both nations have recently emerged from periods of significant human rights abuse, and both continue to grapple with the need to protect human rights while addressing significant social issues. This unique program offers students immersion in a foreign legal system and a comparative perspective on pressing questions of human rights.
The Summer Program is offered in conjunction with Universidad Vina del Mar, Vina del Mar Chile, and Universidad Palermo, Buenos Aires Argentina.
