The Summer Program focuses on various aspects of the complex and important relationship between the United States and the European Union, from a constitutional, transactional, comparative, and internationalist perspective.
Students will gain more than subject matter exposure. Students will be exposed to university life in Poland, as well as to the Polish language, in an optional three-day language course during the first week of the program. Moreover, they will be exposed to the cultural, historical and architectural treasures of Bialystok, long one of Poland’s key eastern centers of commerce, arts, and politics. As in the past, the program will be open to students from the U.S., Poland, Lithuania and Belorus.
A key aspect of the program is the integration of European – including students from Poland, Lithuania, and Belarus – and American students in the classes. By including students from different educational backgrounds, all students will enrich their understanding of other legal systems and cultures.
