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 24 through June 8; summer 2018 courses will cover:
- 9111 A: Emerging Issues in EU Business Law and Policy
- 9112 A: Mental Health and Disability Law in a Comparitive Context
- 9113 A: The Irish Legal System
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.
