Program Overview

Program Description:
The Summer Institute in International and Comparative Law will be held at the Universidad de Buenos Aires Law School in Buenos Aires, Argentina&339;s capital. Classes will be held in the prestigious Facultad de Derecho at the Universidad; the modern, spacious law library has up-to-date legal resources, computer facilities for students and quiet study spaces. The program cost includes local field trips to Argentine legal, political, and economic institutions.

All students will be enrolled in four separate one-credit hour courses focusing on International Law focusing on South America. Classes will generally meet during the mornings, Monday through Thursday, leaving afternoons and three-day weekends free for social events and travel. All courses will be conducted in English. This program includes the following modules:

  • International Comparative Competition Law
  • Truth Commissions: Exploring Argentina's Legal Approach to Human Rights Abuse
  • Legal Issues Involving Argentina's "Disappeared" Including Rights of Adopted Children and Their Biological Grandparents
  • Comparative Legal Profession

    As the world becomes an integrated global economy, lawyers must become acquainted with international law and foreign legal systems. As the fastest growing economic region in the world, South America has become a key player in global economic and legal relations. As a result of the creation of MERCOSUR, the South American counterpart to NAFTA, South American companies are well poised to become competitive players on world markets. Thus, Argentina presents an ideal location for the Institute in International Law.
Setting Description:
The Summer Institute in International and Comparative Law will focus on comparative law, business law and international human rights. Argentina provides a fertile backdrop for the study of each of these. With regard to comparative law, Argentina is a leader in the application of international and regional obligations within its domestic law; comparative law is thus an integral part of the domestic law of Argentina. With respect to business law, American companies, and thus American law firms, are engaged in significant business transactions with Argentine companies. Argentina is a full member of MERCOSUR, resulting in dramatic increases in Argentine exports and imports.
