Summer Law Institute
The Texas Tech University School of Law is a proud partner in a consortium of three law schools that has developed the Summer Law Institute, a cooperative teaching program with the University of Guanajuato. The University of Guanajuato Law School is one of Mexico's leading law centers and is located in the silver-mining highlands of central Mexico. The Institute offers a thorough introduction to Mexican Law and International Law subjects related to the United States and Latin America.
As trade relations with Mexico and the rest of Latin America continue to expand, Texas Tech wants to ensure that our students have an opportunity to prepare for international legal opportunities that will continue to multiply. The Summer Law Institute helps us achieve that objective by giving students the option to work, learn and study in Mexico under the direction of professors not only from Texas Tech, but other professors, practitioners and jurists invited from around the United States and Mexico.
Texas Tech University requires all their study abroad students (including Tech law students) to register with the Texas Tech Office of International Affairs and to complete an on-line application process that further requires (among other things) attendance at a pre-departure orientation session, a physical examination and a processing fee. Texas Tech students will not be allowed to study abroad unless they complete all requirements included in this online application process. For more information, students should contact a study abroad advisor at Texas Tech's Office for International Affairs (http://www.studyabroad.ttu.edu/index.cfm?FuseAction=StaffMain.Home). More information about Study Abroad resources and considerations is located at Texas Tech University's Study Abroad Web Site.
The Summer Law Institute accepts applications from students attending other universities. It is open to all law students, graduate students, and professionals interested in learning the legal systems and culture of Mexico. The Institute has been approved by the Accreditation Committee of the ABA Section on Legal Education. Students are also allowed to register for any Law School Summer Program offered by any ABA-approved law school in the country. The ABA provides a list of approved international summer programs.
