The 29th Baltimore/Maryland Summer School at the Aberdeen University School of Law will run from 6 to 31 July 2015. The programme was initiated in 1987 by Baltimore and Aberdeen Universities, with Maryland University, also in Baltimore, joining a few years later. Courses meet ABA criteria to qualify as US law degree credits for admission to practice purposes. All courses have a US and a Scottish coordinator and are taught on a comparative basis. Some 27 US students are participating this year.
The 2015 courses are Comparative Conflict Resolution, taught by Deborah Eisenberg (Maryland) and Derek Auchie (Aberdeen), and Comparative Constitutionalism, taught by CJ Peters (Baltimore) and Mike Radford and Robert Taylor (Aberdeen).
The programme will include two visits to Edinburgh: one to the Court of Session and the Scottish Parliament building and a second to sit in on High Court trials being heard by Lord Pentland.
