Law School Welcomes Students from the Australian National University College of Law

ANU 2017

Nine wonderfully gifted law students from the Australian National University College of Law arrived in Tuscaloosa on January 7 for a five-week visit at the Law School.

The ANU students are taking a class on Comparative Approaches to Counter-Terrorism Law and a Survey on U.S. Law, said Professor William Andreen, Director of the UA-ANU Exchange Program. The comparative class, which is also being offered to Alabama law students, is being team-taught by Professor Jenny Carroll and Dr. Mark Nolan from the ANU College of Law.

During their stay in Tuscaloosa, the students will visit the Civil Rights Institute in Birmingham, the Alabama Supreme Court, the Tuscaloosa County Jail, the Rosa Parks Museum and Bryant-Denny Stadium.

For five weeks this summer, a group of 10 Alabama students will, in turn, travel to the ANU in Canberra where they will take a Survey of Australian Law as well as the Comparative Counter-Terrorism class.  During their trip, the UA students will visit the Australian High Court, the local Supreme Court, the Commonwealth Parliament, and a local legal aid office – in addition, of course, to kangaroos, koalas, and emus at the nearby Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve.
