Law School welcomes Baltimore and Maryland students as long-standing summer school returns

The University of Aberdeen Law School has once again opened its doors to students from the USA as part of its Baltimore/Maryland Summer School.

The Summer School is a long-standing tradition between the institutions - the programme was initiated in 1987 by Baltimore and Aberdeen Universities, with Maryland University joining a few years later.

This is the first time the Summer School has been run since the pandemic. A total of 13 students and two academic colleagues from the US are attending the four-week programme, which will see them study Comparative Business Law and Comparative Human Rights Law.

Teaching is delivered through a mix of classroom learning and field trips, with other highlights of the programme including a visit to Aberdeen Sheriff Court and Trinity Hall. They will also attend a Civic Reception at Aberdeen Town House and visit Fyvie Castle in Aberdeenshire and the Inverurie Whisky Shop to see local businesses in action.

Professor Susan Stokeld from the University of Aberdeen said: “We are delighted to welcome students from Baltimore and Maryland back to the Old Aberdeen campus for the first Summer School since 2019. We hope the programme will provide them with a rich and informative experience during their visit and they enjoy spending time here in the north-east of Scotland.”

Professor Elizabeth Keyes from the University of Baltimore added: “The University of Aberdeen offers our students such a tremendous opportunity to compare evolving areas of law across two very different legal systems, hopefully opening their minds to the enormous possibilities of how law can evolve in different contexts and through changing times. It is a joy to collaborate with our brilliant Aberdeen counterparts, as we see the program come back to life.”
