The Tübingen-Chapel Hill Law Program promotes and facilitates trans-Atlantic cooperation and collaboration. Alongside joint research workshops and symposia on matters of common interest, the program creates added value for our student communities through a strong teaching component designed to promote mutual understanding and awareness of each other’s legal systems and cultures. As a core element of the program, faculty and students from Carolina Law visit the Eberhard Karls University Faculty of Law for two weeks in the summer. The Eberhard Karls University in located in Tübingen, Germany.
In connection with this visit, Carolina Law students take courses—taught in English—alongside German students. Carolina Law students are exposed to subjects like corporate and antitrust law, research-based workshops, and an extracurricular program including excursions to institutions like parliaments, central banks, and courts. Carolina Law students also have the opportunity to educate German law students about U.S. law and legal institutions. And for those who are interested in extending their legal experience, internships for Carolina Law students are available in Frankfurt and Stuttgart at international law firms.
The Center for Banking and Finance invites rising 2Ls focused on the study of banking, finance, and business legal issues to apply for its grants from the Center for Banking and Finance International Enrichment Fund. The grants help defray the cost of studying abroad in the summer. Students have been funded to participate in the Tübingen-Chapel Hill Law Program.
