Mix & Match
Students may take either the 4-unit course and an internship in Turkey, or enroll in our class in Vienna before taking our course in Istanbul.
In addition to internship placements in Istanbul, we may be able to place selected students in Dubai at a prestigious U.S. law firm with an international practice. We also offer an exciting opportunity for an internship in Kuwait with one of the leading law firms in the Gulf region.

"I thought that this is the best law related course I've taken. I believe that I will be turning to this material frequently, when practicing. [T]his course was the best bang for the buck ... In my opinion, this beats any regular law school course, any time of the year, any school in the country." Ayla A., Lewis & Clark (2012)
"I REALLY liked this program. I am now interested in business finance and tax law, and it all started with the exposure I got during the Istanbul program." Kalu Kalu, Santa Clara Law (2012)
"This summer was fantastic, and my internship in Dubai was unforgettable." Anonymous, Golden Gate University School of Law (2011)
"The [Istanbul] program was extremely well run, the classes and lecturers were outstanding, and the Koç University Campus was an excellent setting. * * * [Koç University has] more amenities than most American campuses, including an outdoor swimming pool, where we would gather many evenings with Turkish students who became our friends * * * Istanbul is a great city to explore even if you're a single woman traveling alone. Public transportation is safe, cheap, and easy to use. The food is excellent. The people are the friendliest and most helpful I've ever met, many speak English extremely well. I say, give it a try, you'll be glad you did."
