Spetses, Greece

Summer Legal Studies Program

June 12 - 25, 2016

Positioned strategically between East and West, near the crossroads of Europe and Asia, and being a member of the European Union since 1981, Greece is ideally situated as a microcosm of current legal issues. Spetses is the ideal place to observe the gap between rich, represented by wealthy Greek weekenders, and working class, exemplified by the year-round residents who are struggling with newly imposed austerity measures.

This program has been designed to examine legal, economic, and social issues in both an academic and experiential way.
