Albany Law School’s students fanned across the globe during the summer of 2013, taking positions on three continents and getting hands-on legal experience in a wide variety of law firms and court systems. Through the New York State Bar Association’s International Law Section’s Summer Law Student Internship Project, students obtained positions in law firm offices in Prague, Vienna, Guatemala City and Mexico City, as well as Bergamo in Italy. Other students participated in the law school’s Paris summer program, while three others clerked for the South African Supreme Court. As part of Albany Law School’s Paris Summer Comparative Law Program, Professor Laurie Shanks’ comparative trial class attended part of a criminal trial in the Palais de Justice and met with the presiding judge.
Both J.D. and LL.M. students can take advantage of the many study abroad opportunities offered at Albany Law. The programs aim to create partnerships with international law schools for the exchange of faculty and students that enrich both the academic and cultural communities of each institution.
