Study Law in China
Spend the summer earning 4 law school credits in two of China's most fascinating cities: Beijing and Shanghai.
Eligibility: The Georgia Law Summer Program in China accepts applications on a first come first served basis from law students who have completed at least one year of law school, and are in good standing.
Past Enrollment: In 2012, twelve students from UGA and three other U.S. law schools participated in the program. At Tsinghua University in Beijing, twelve Chinese students participated in the program alongside the American students.
2013 Enrollment: Total enrollment is capped at 50. Up to 10 Chinese law students and up to 20 participants from Brazil will take part in the Beijing portion of the program in 2013.
Grading: The grading system will be the same as that regularly used at the University of Georgia School of Law.
Credit: Each of the four courses will culminate in a 90-minute, in-class exam. Participants who successfully complete the program are eligible to receive 4 ABA-approved hours of academic credit. Students are responsible for obtaining approval to transfer credit and information about the possibility of accelerated graduation from their own law schools.
Cancellation, Withdrawal, and Reimbursement Policies:
The University of Georgia School of Law reserves the right to cancel for insufficient enrollment or under extraordinary circumstances such as natural disaster, war, political instability or emergency. In such an event, students will be notified by email and receive a full refund, including the deposit, within twenty (20) days after the cancellation. If requested, the program director will use best efforts to arrange for applicants to enroll in a similar program.

Applicants who have paid a deposit or registered for the program and withdrawn under any such circumstances will be refunded fees paid except for room and board payments utilized prior to the date of withdrawal or termination.
