Suffolk University Law School is delighted to announce a new partnership with the National University of Ireland at Galway (NUI Galway)! Located on the scenic west coast of Ireland, NUI-Galway is a prestigious research university and an integral part of the Irish national university system.
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 18 through June 1; Summer 2019 courses will cover:
- 9112 A: Mental Health and Disability Law in a Comparative Context
- 9113 A: The Irish Legal System
- 9114 A: Constitutional Law and Climate Change: Comparing the U.S., The European Union, and Developing Nations
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 externships or other legal work for the rest of the summer. Students interested in externship placement in Ireland or other international locations should contact international externship director, Professor Sarah Boonin, early in the process. All such externships can be completed for credit.
