A new program in the UNC School of Law promotes and facilitates cooperation and collaboration among law students at Carolina and Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen in Germany.
Through the Tübingen-Chapel Hill Law Program, second-year Carolina Law students spend two weeks at Tübingen University Faculty of Law, participating in research workshops and taking courses alongside German students. Carolina Law faculty also teach classes and accompany students on legal-related excursions. During the spring semester, students and faculty from Tübingen visit their counterparts in Chapel Hill. Students from both universities gain mutual understanding and awareness of each other’s legal systems and cultures.
For students interested in extending their legal experience, internships are available in Frankfurt and Stuttgart at international law firms. Last summer, Carolina Law students Anna Huffman and Carleigh Zeman took advantage. Anna worked for two weeks at international law firm White & Case in Frankfurt, and Carleigh stayed another month in Stuttgart for a paid internship with Gleiss Lutz.
“I knew when I applied to Carolina Law that I wanted to go into international law so this internship has been right up my alley,” noted Carleigh. “It has given me a lot of helpful experience and insight into international arbitral tribunals and how they operate.”
Carolina Law’s experiential learning programs enable law students and faculty the opportunity to engage in international partnerships and develop a global mindset.
