International Summer Programs

Australian National University (ANU)

The Law School has a program with the Australian National University which is located in the nation’s capital city, Canberra. Each summer, a group of students travel from Alabama to Australia for approximately five weeks. They take a survey course in Australian law and a substantive course co-taught by professors from both schools. As part of the survey course, our students generally visit Parliament House, the High Court of Australia, and the Supreme Court of the Australian Capital Territory.

Australian National University is the national university of Australia and promotes a research-intensive approach to the study of law. Moreover, Canberra is the capital city of the nation. Canberra, moreover, offers many recreational activities, including the National Museum of Australia, the National Gallery, the National War Memorial, the National Portrait Gallery, and the Australian Institute of Sport.

Each winter, a group of students from Australia spend five weeks at the Law School. They take two courses for academic credit from the ANU.

Students participating in the Australia program will be out of the country for one-third of the summer. Since the program is for only one-third of the summer, those students going abroad will have the opportunity to clerk at a firm, take classes, extern, or other activities for the first two-thirds of the summer.

If you are interested in participating in the Australia exchange program, registration begins in late fall. For information, please contact Professor Bill Andreen at wandreen@law.ua.edu.
