Summer Program in Law
The College of Law annually sponsors a five-and-a-half-week summer semester of legal studies at the University of Oxford in England. The Summer Program in Law is the oldest summer program at Oxford offered by an American law school. Approximately 45 students from the United States and Canada attend each year. Students may earn up to six semester hours of course credit for participation. Students in the program have a unique opportunity to study comparative law and the history and development of English common law and common law institutions in their native setting. Tenured law faculty from the University of Oxford and Florida State University provide instruction for the program. Students reside at St. Edmund Hall, the Oxford College, which traces its origins to the 13th century, when Edmund of Abingdon, lecturer and later Archbishop of Canterbury, lived and taught at the site now occupied by "Teddy" Hall.
