Catherine Moore, coordinator of international law programs, sends news from Scotland, where 14 University of Baltimore law students are taking part in the annual study-abroad summer program in Aberdeen.
The students toured the city’s Town House with John M. Reynolds (center-right, in tie), the deputy provost for the City of Aberdeen and a councillor in the Aberdeen City Council. He was the Lord Provost of the City of Aberdeen from 2003-07.
The City Council meets at the Town House, whose tower is a major landmark in the city in northeastern Scotland.
In addition to the UB participants, eight students from other U.S. law schools are taking part in the program, including one student from the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law.
The program provides students with insight into the laws of another country, a new perspective on the American legal system, and a look at the challenges of representing clients in a global economy. Courses are taught by University of Baltimore and University of Maryland law faculty, along with members of the University of Aberdeen law faculty.
This year the program runs from July 11 to Aug. 5.
