Stetson Law Vice President and Dean Darby Dickerson signed an agreement on Oct. 15 with Argentinean Judge Santiago Otamendi and colleagues to provide a new internship opportunity for students. Students can now intern for up to six months in Argentina.

 

An Argentinean delegation visited Stetson Law this week to learn more about international law programs at Stetson and the federal court system in the U.S. In addition to visiting with Stetson Law faculty and students, the Argentinean delegation visited the Hillsborough County Jail and federal court in Tampa to learn more about the American judicial process.
