Law in Ireland
- Students take courses at two beautiful universities: The University of Limerick and University College Dublin
- On the weekends, the group makes trip to various scenic sites and cities in the region
- KU law faculty members serve to educate and mentor students through the duration of the program
The University of Kansas Ireland Program takes students to three of Ireland's most interesting communities. The first two weeks of classes will be held on the beautiful campus of the University of Limerick, a relatively new Irish university located on the banks of the Shannon River. The final week will be held at the famous University College Dublin, a short bus ride from Dublin's city center. The first weekend will feature a tour of some of Western Ireland's most scenic spots followed by a visit to the swinging Western city of Galway. The second weekend will include two nights in city center Dublin, a pub dinner for all, and a "legal Dublin" tour of prominent Irish legal institutions.
Dublin, Ireland and Limerick, Ireland
Housing at the University of Limerick will be on campus. The campus features a number of amenities, including ATMs, laundry and dry cleaning, a bookstore and three active pubs. Housing during the Galway and Dublin-center excursions will be at hostels unless the student makes his/her own arrangements. Housing during the final course week will be on campus at University College Dublin.
