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 grants from the Center for Banking and Finance International Enrichment Fund! The grants help defray 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 2019 program in European and International Law is in English and will be offered from June 17-July 26.
Students have the opportunity to travel to the Eberhard Karls University in Tübingen, Germany from July 1-12, 2019. Dean Martin Brinkley,
Professor Lissa Broome and Professor John Coyle will be teaching courses as a part of the
program.< The Center for Banking and Finance is offering stipends of up to $2,000 to defray the costs of participating. A completed application must be submitted by email to Stephanie Schantz (email@example.com) by February 15, 2019 at 5:00 pm for consideration for this scholarship.

Students should submit the necessary forms to the 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.
