Academic Program - Autumn in London

london_towersThe program will be from Aug. 16-Nov. 28, 2014. Exams will be given at the end of classes. The type of exam will be at the discretion of the professor teaching the course. Most of the courses will be offered for two or three academic credits. In addition to regularly scheduled classes, the program will include a number of distinguished guest speakers from the English Legal system and field trips to major English legal institutions such as the Old Bailey, the Inns of Court, and The Royal Courts of Justice. Students will be provided with numerous opportunities to make social and professional contacts with English barristers and solicitors.

In addition to taking traditional courses, students have the opportunity to do an internship with British legal institutions and British barristers and solicitors. To be considered for the internship, you must submit a cover letter and resume to the Internship Director, Dr. Stuart Weinstein at Internships for more information.

Academic Credit

The Autumn in London curriculum and course credits are posted under Courses on this site. All requirements for student performance will be no less rigorous than courses at students' home schools. To receive academic credit, students must satisfy requirements imposed by course instructors concerning class attendance, and participation, readings, written assignments, and/or final examinations. Students will be assigned grades by individual instructors. Acceptance and interpretation of any academic credit or grade for courses taken in the program is subject to determination by the student's home institution.

Enrollment Restrictions

Only a limited number of students may enroll in the program. Students from law schools other than Stetson are welcome. To be eligible for admission, students must have completed at least one year at an ABA-accredited law school. The program is limited to 40 students. Students will be admitted in order of our receipt of your application -- we strongly advise students interested in the program to enroll as soon as possible.

Acceptance of transfer credit is subject to determination by the student's home school. Students should check carefully with their home school for rules regarding the transfer of credit. Satisfaction of law school residency requirements must be confirmed with the student's home institution.

Examinations

Most examinations will be held in the last two weeks of the program, following the end of classes. Some professors may give take-home examinations or assess a course by research paper.

The program site serves as an additional Stetson campus, and all the academic requirements and policies that apply at Stetson will also apply in this program.

ABA American Bar Association Accreditation

Stetson University College of Law is fully accredited by the ABA and the AALS. The Autumn in London program has been approved by the American Bar Association.
