Creighton University School of Law is excited to offer two courses for summer study in Nuremberg, Germany. Students enrolled in Creighton's summer abroad program "From Nuremberg to The Hague" will spend July 10 - August 9, 2013 in Germany and The Netherlands with leading faculty exploring the reaches of international criminal law, the impact of the Holocaust on the law, and the prosecution of war criminals and perpetrators of genocide and crimes against humanity.
Set in the Bavarian city that hosted the Nazi war crimes trials after World War II, and is widely regarded as the birthplace of modern international criminal law, students will enrich their classroom learning with frequent field trips to see the traces of Germany's Nazi past, visit former concentration camps, and travel to The Hague, Netherlands, where war criminals are currently being prosecuted in the International Criminal Court, the Special Chambers of the Special Court for Sierra Leone, and the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia.
Eligibility: Creighton's Nuremberg Summer Program is open to any law student currently enrolled in an American Bar Association (ABA) approved law school, and to graduate students from accredited programs. The program yields six (6) credits which are fully transferable to any other ABA approved law school. Credits earned by Creighton students count toward the Law School's Concentration in International & Comparative Law and also toward the joint J.D./Master's in International Relations degree. Non-Creighton student applicants must submit a letter of good standing from their dean along with their application form.
