England Maymester

The USC Joseph F. Rice School of Law offers a study-abroad program in Oxford and London, taught during three weeks of the month of May in conjunction with The Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn, one of the four London Inns of Court, and Pembroke College in Oxford.

The program features two academic courses amounting to four credit hours. One, entitled Comparative Constitutional Law, is a 2-1/2 credit-hour course taught by Dr. Farrah Raza, Stipendiary Lecturer in Public Law from Pembroke College, Oxford. This class will be taught at Pembroke College in Oxford. The other course, entitled Comparative Legal Institutions, is a 1-1/2 credit-hour course taught by Dean William C. Hubbard and Dr. Farrah Raza. This course will be taught on the premises of The Honourable Society of Gray’s Inn, located near the Law Courts in the Bloomsbury neighborhood of central London.

Gray’s Inn is one of the four London Inns of Court that manage the justice system of England and Wales. The courses normally meet on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings. Arrangements are made for visits to London legal sites such as Westminster Palace (the Houses of Parliament), the Law Courts, and the other Inns of Court. Gray’s Inn trains barristers, and formal interaction between our students and the Gray’s Inn student barristers includes dinners “in Hall” in the Inn’s 16th Century Great Hall.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
