Institute in International Commercial Law & Dispute Resolution

About the Program

Program Dates: July 5 - August 1, 2015  
Program Cost: $4,950.00
The University of Pittsburgh School of Law, Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center, and the University of Zagreb Faculty of Law are pleased to present their sixth summer law program in Croatia, offered in cooperation with UNCITRAL. The Institute in International Commercial Law & Dispute Resolution is a four-week, five-credit, ABA-approved program, taught by leaders in the field, that provides a broad introduction to international business transactions, followed by a focused examination of the law governing international sales of goods and international commercial arbitration. The program also highlights a number of key legal instruments arising out of the work of UNCITRAL, the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law. The first three weeks of doctrinal instruction are further enhanced by a final week of skills training applying students’ newly acquired legal expertise to a simulated dispute arising out of an international sale of goods and subject to arbitration. The Institute offers focused and innovative legal educational training concentrating on a timely and exciting area of law—all in a perfect setting.

The program begins with a week in Zagreb, Croatia’s vibrant capital. Zagreb is the cultural center of the country, as well as its largest city. Students and faculty then move to Zadar, where they will spend the final three weeks of the program on the Adriatic Sea’s Dalmatian coast. Zadar is a walled city of less than 100,000 people situated on a peninsula steeped in history. The third weekend of the program includes a group excursion to a nearby archipelago and its surrounding waters.

Touro Law Center reserves the right to modify or cancel a program for reasonable cause, including but not limited to insufficient enrollment, severe political instability, or any serious condition that may threaten the safety of the students. If a program is cancelled, any money paid to Touro by a program participant will be fully refunded within 20 days, except for room and board and transportation payments utilized prior to the date of cancellation; Touro will endeavor to help each enrolled student attend a similar program, if the student so desires.
