There are many exciting Summer Study Abroad options available for UNC law students to gain additional law course credits and legal knowledge and experience. Some summer programs also incorporate international internship opportunities for credit hours.
The Center for Banking and Finance invites rising 2Ls focused on the study of banking, finance, and business legal issues to apply for its inaugural grant from the Center for Banking and Finance International Enrichment Fund! The grant provides up to $5,000 toward the cost of studying abroad in the summer. Preference will be given to students who wish to study with our international partner, University of Augsburg. The Augsburg 2018 program in European and International Law is in English and will be offered from June 4 - July 13.
A completed application must be submitted by email to Professor Lissa Broome (firstname.lastname@example.org) for consideration for this scholarship. The application deadline for summer 2018 is March 14, 2018.
Students should submit the necessary forms to Beverly Sizemore, director of International Programs, and the financial aid officer. Students are required to have at least a 3.0 GPA to attend a summer study abroad program.
Students are required to post a grade of "C" or better in their courses at the international institution to be awarded Pass (PS) credit for the course(s) on their UNC law transcript. This requirement is held for both summer study abroad courses and semester study abroad courses.
All UNC system students earning credit hours applicable to their graduation are mandated to buy GeoBlue worldwide insurance for the duration of their academic program. This is done through the International & LL.M. Programs office. If the Study Abroad Program chosen has its own health insurance policy required for its participants, then one can submit a waiver form to Beverly Sizemore.
