What is the Norway summer program?
The summer foreign program in Norway is part of a quarter-century tradition at the UND School of Law. The current program is an outgrowth and evolution of an exchange program between the University of North Dakota and Universitetet i Oslo that began in 1983. That program brought more than 400 law students from Norway for study in the U.S. and more than 350 law students from the U.S. to Oslo for a summer program. In 2009, Universitetet i Oslo ended its exchange program. After a year hiatus, the UND School of Law reconfigured the program as a foreign summer study program. The revamped summer program reinstitutes the law school's long-stranding focus on Norway and Norwegian law as a specialty area, and provides a rich and rewarding study abroad opportunity for UND and other law students. In the summer of 2011, three UND law students attended the first summer program to be held in Moss, Norway on the campus of the American College of Norway.
The foreign summer study program in Norway fits squarely within the mission of the UND School of Law. The prior exchange program with Universitetet i Oslo has long been a signature program at the law school, building upon the University of North Dakota's and our region's strong ties to Norway.
The program provides students with an opportunity to learn a non-common law based legal system, study international institutions, interact with Norwegian students, and to generally diversify their legal education in a way that is not possible through the classes currently offered at the UND School of Law.
UND's summer program in Norway will be from May 20 to June 14, 2013. The Program will again be located on the Campus of the American College of Norway in Moss, Norway. Between 8 and 15 students are expected for 2013.
