The Tenth Annual Fordham Law Summer Institute in New York City is taking place July 5–22. This year’s program has close to 100 participants from some 25 countries around the globe.
The Summer Institute begins with an introduction to the U.S. legal system and offers a survey of the areas of law most important for global attorneys in the 21st century—from international arbitration to intellectual property and information technology law to corporations and mergers & acquisitions. The program also offers Legal English seminars and special sessions on applying to and preparing for U.S. LLM programs. Also included are a visit to the United States Bankruptcy Court, a tour of the United Nations, and a briefing at the multinational law firm Morgan, Lewis & Bockius. The program ends with a gala dinner where certificates of completion are awarded to program participants.
