UGA Study Away Fair

Interested in studying abroad this summer while earning credit towards your degree? Come to the UGA Study Away Fair to learn more about UGA Law’s Global Governance Summer School!

During this two week program that travels to both Belgium and The Netherlands, students will explore global governance:  how state, regional, and international legal regimes, plus individuals, corporations, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations, networks, and other non-state actors, interact. A range of global challenges will be discussed, and topics may include trade and sustainable development, peace and security, trafficking and other crimes, intellectual property, the environment, human rights and the rule of law, and migration.

UGA law students and graduate students are encouraged to apply. Please email Sarah Quinn (squinn@uga.edu) with any questions.

The event is free and open to all (no pre-registration required). It will take place on the 3rd floor of the Tate Student Center, which is located at 45 Baxter St. in Athens, GA. There are elevators from the Tate Center parking deck directly to the 3rd floor.
