Under the partnership, Suffolk law students will be able to study international and comparative law in Galway under the supervision of Suffolk Law professor and guest lecturers from NUI-Galway and other institutions in Ireland, earning three law school credits. The program will run from May 20 through June 3; summer 2022 courses will cover:
- Disability Rights in a Comparative Context; Professor Sarah Boonin
- Lawyers, Guns (Runners), and Money (Laundering); Professor Jack Pokorak
Students will have the opportunity to visit institutions of local legal culture, and interact with their Irish peers. Galway is a thriving college town, with great vitality in music and performing arts.
As the academic program will be over by early to mid June, participants are strongly urged to pursue internships or other legal work for the rest of the summer. Students interested in internship placement in Ireland or other international locations should contact international internship director, Professor Christine Bustany, early in the process. All such internships can be completed for credit.
