What Students Say:

"The new experiences in a foreign legal system and in a new culture are invaluable and an opportunity of a lifetime."

-AUWCL International JD Dual Degree Student, France

"I participated in WCL's Summer Program in The Hague, and I was able to return to The Hague and intern at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. Now, I have more contacts, and a greater chance of securing a position in the international legal field."

- AUWCL Summer Law Program Participant, The Hague

"My favorite part about the program was getting a chance to immerse myself in the culture of each country we visited while seeing the immediate practical application of the courses we were taking.
