A brief introduction to the general history of Austria and of Vienna includes a walk through the southern part of the inner city. We will talk about music, architecture, art, history and everyday life of Vienna. We shall also visit the famous Hans Kelsen Institute.

This course offers students a unique opportunity to learn more about international business issues within a European framework. Students will initially engage in a general study of the Austrian legal system and comparative studies between the civil and common law systems. The course then shifts its focus onto European Union law, covering its sources, framework and fundamental principles. The program begins in Vienna. Classes extend over three weeks, and most are held in the mornings. They meet either at the law school of the University of Vienna or at the National Defense Academy, where participants are housed. Students will have full use of the law library and other facilities at the University of Vienna School of Law.
Setting Description:
Little needs be said to describe physically and culturally the cities of Vienna and Budapest. Both are ?“must see?” cities of the world. Music, culture, history, marvelous food, and pure beauty are on every corner. In addition to being beautiful and exciting capitals, each city and country has a less well known legal history that serves as an ideal base from which to study civil and comparative law as well as the problems and issues of the European Union.
Cost:
$1000 per unit
