The joint Queen's/Dalhousie Global Law program provides students with an intensive and integrated academic program in international law. The programs are offered at the Bader International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle in East Sussex, U.K. for 8 weeks in May and June of each year. Students enroll in one of two programs: International Business Law, or Public International Law. All students begin with a two-week Public International Law course and then split into separate program groups (Public and Business). The International Business Law students study International Economic Law and International Commercial Arbitration; the Public International Law students study International Human Rights Law and International Criminal Law. The programs include various field trips, including a trip to Brussels, The Hague, Paris and Geneva. Dalhousie students can earn nine credits for successfully completing either program. Applications are due by late December each year, although late applications can sometimes be accepted. There is an information session held in the fall term at the Schulich School of Law each year, and further details of the program and course descriptions can be found on the Queen's Law website at http://law.queensu.ca/international/globalLawProgramsAtTheBISC.html. Please note Dalhousie students wishing to attend this program must consult in advance with the Director, Student Services and Engagement about the application of BISC credits towards their degree. Grades earned at the Bader International Study Centre will not be included in a Dalhousie student’s overall weighted average for any purpose, including eligibility for supplemental exams.
