South American Externships
Buenos Aires, Argentina - Not offered in 2013
4 units | The first few days of this internship will be spent in Cordoba, Argentina, at the Catholic University School of Law, joint sponsor of the program and one of Argentina's leading law schools. In Cordoba, participants will live in student housing, and receive instruction in the legal system of Argentina and its relationship to regional and international law. Each student will then spend four weeks working at either private or public law placements in Buenos Aires. Accommodations will be provided at a modest cost. Students will be responsible for their own transportation between the United States and Argentina, and between Cordoba and Buenos Aires (a one-day bus ride or one-hour plane ride). Each student will participate in the general work of their respective law offices, and will be engaged in a specific project, for which they will produce a 20-page paper. The paper topic will be determined through discussion between students, their English-speaking internship supervisors.
