Russia Law Program
The University of Arkansas School of Law continues to innovate with its study abroad and international law offerings. The Russia Law Summer Program, held in July and August, included two weeks of courses at the Fayetteville campus. While at the School of Law, the eight students in the program took classes from American and Russian faculty on topics including the Russian Constitution, Comparative Religious Freedom, Secession and Breakup of Nations, and International Tax.
The Russia Law Summer Program will be offered again during the 2015 summer session. Professors Howard Brill, Irini Feofanova, and Will Foster will lead the program.
