I.          WHY CAMBRIDGE?

Cambridge is one of the most famous places to visit in the world today and home to one of the world’s great universities – the University of Cambridge.  Nestled in the heart of the United Kingdom near London, Cambridge offers an unparalleled learning experience in a Harry Potter-style medieval environment that will inspire and motivate you.  The City straddles the historic Cam River and is home to medieval and modern buildings, pubs, theaters, museums, restaurants, shops, book stores, and coffee houses.  The Cambridge community is made up of multilingual faculty and students from all over the world who partake in academic and social life in a collegial environment.  Cambridge is well-known for its great minds and contributions in the sciences (Newton, Darwin and Hawking) and international law (Coke, Lauterpacht and Crawford) and is the ideal venue for discussion and development of topical issues in these important fields.


The purpose of the Cambridge Summer Law Institute is to provide students with the opportunity to study law at one of the pre-eminent institutions for international legal studies and bring Cambridge minds and ideas to students in an ideal learning atmosphere.  For two weeks, students will explore topical international legal events in the European Union (EU) up close (e.g., the Brexit Crisis) and study the impact of these events on the development of economic and human rights law and policy under the tutelage of leading experts in the field.  The program will take place at historic Hughes Hall (known informally as the “Law College”) at Cambridge, where students reside, dine and participate in lectures.  Students also will dine in the Fourteenth Century Old Hall of Queens’ College and participate in lectures and events at the Lauterpacht Center for International Law, the scholarly home of International law at the University of Cambridge.  The program will include a short train ride into London to visit the renowned Inns of Court to observe first-hand the world of Barristers and the practice of law at the Royal Courts of Justice.  


We will accept applications from law students enrolled at any law school in the world, or graduate students in related disciplines.
