Eligibility and Acceptance
Students who are in good standing and who have completed one year of full-time or part-time law study at a U.S. law school at the start of the program are eligible to apply for admission to the program for academic credit. Law students at universities outside of the United States who have completed a year of study and practicing attorneys are also eligible to apply to attend the program. Students from non-U.S. law schools and practicing attorneys will receive a letter from the office of the registrar for completed course work, but they will not normally receive academic credit from the program. CLE credit may be available.
We are looking for a diverse group of interesting students who will bring various talents and backgrounds to the summer program, and who will particularly benefit from what it has to offer. Brooklyn and Loyola adhere to and support all legal requirements for non-discrimination and equal opportunity in all of their programs.
You are advised to apply as early as possible, though no later than Friday, February 24, 2017 in order to secure a place in the program. We will consider applications received after February 24, 2017 so long as space remains.
Last year, 25 students participated in the program, including one from a school other than Brooklyn and Loyola.
Due to special school and work requirements during the summer, students in the Accelerated JD program at Brooklyn Law School are not eligible to enroll in the Bologna/Beijing program.
Enrollment in the program is not limited to students from the United States. Occasionally a very small number of students from other countries, including China and Italy, have participated in the program. The vast majority of students who enroll, however, are from the United States, and the number or citizenship of foreign students that might enroll is impossible to predict.
Good Standing Letters
Students from Brooklyn and Loyola, by signing and submitting their applications, authorize their Registrars to verify their good standing.
Students from other schools must submit letters of good standing. You are required to check with your school to determine your eligibility to attend the program. Letters of good standing are due by Friday, February 24, 2017.
