Program Overview

Program Description:
Since 1971, the FSU London Program has offered students from across the nation a fine liberal arts curriculum in an historic seat of Western government, commerce, and literature. The London Study Centre is located in a row of 17th century buildings registered on the British National Heritage list. Students live and study in our state-of-the art educational facility in the heart of the Bloomsbury district, one block from the British Museum and minutes from the theatre district, the National Gallery and many more London landmarks. The Oxford Law Program is the oldest summer program at Oxford offered by an American law school. Students have a unique opportunity to study comparative law and the history and development of English common law and common law institutions in their native setting. There are many programs based at our London Study Centre, ranging from our broad curriculum programs that are attractive to students in any major to curriculum-focused programs in areas like literature, international affairs, communication, media, art, engineering and theatre.

Now in its 41st year, this is the oldest on-going program in Oxford that is sponsored by a U.S. law school. It provides a unique opportunity for students and practitioners to study comparative law and the history of the common law in its original setting. Participants reside at St. Edmund Hall, Oxford University college, which traces its roots to the 13th century, when Edmund of Abingdon, monk and the subsequent Archbishop of Canterbury, is believed to have lived and taught at the location. It became St. Edmund Hall in 1317. Of the oldest original Oxford communities, St. Edmund Hall alone survives. The program includes a trip to the Inns of Court and the Royal Courts of Justice in London and an evening of Shakespeare at Stratford-upon-Avon. With all of England, Scotland, and Wales located a short and fairly inexpensive distance from Oxford, participants enjoy many other travel adventures.
