Duke-Leiden Institute in Global and Transnational Law
The Duke-Leiden Institute in Global and Transnational Law is a one-month residential program in Leiden and The Hague, the Netherlands, designed for students and young professionals interested in studying international and comparative law. The Institute, which takes place over four weeks in June and July, also provides an excellent foundation for studying law in the United States. Courses are taught in English by faculty from the United States and from other countries. In previous years, courses have focused on subjects such as international trade, international dispute resolution, human rights, international criminal law, and comparative constitutional law. The Institute enrolls approximately 50 students from Duke and other American law schools, as well as from countries around the world.
Duke Law School is also proud to offer the Summer Institute on Law, Language, & Culture. This four-week intensive program takes place at Duke Law School and is designed to introduce international students and visitors coming to Duke to the American law school experience.
