Summer CLE in England



Details

The program will be held at Jesus College, Cambridge University, from July 1- July 6, 2012. 

Cambridge University is the second-oldest university in both the United Kingdom and the English-speaking world. Law has been taught there for many centuries and the present law faculty building, built in 1840, houses one of the best law libraries in Great Britain. 

Although Jesus College was founded in 1496, it is unique in as much as the Chapel and other buildings date from the 12th and 13th centuries and were originally the Benedictine Convent of St Mary and St Radegund. The College is centrally located in Cambridge and consists of some of the most spacious and beautiful grounds in Cambridge. Its architecture reflects a pleasing combination of historical and modern facilities. 

The medieval city of Cambridge is a very special place with exceptional museums, architecture, art galleries, shopping, and restaurants. It is centrally located, only one hour from London by fast and frequent trains, and easily accesses a host of historic market towns including Ely, Ipswich, Bury St. Edmonds, Peterborough and Leicester. Its winding cobblestoned streets, lush parks, and rivers provide a trip back into the past and yet its amenities are as current as any in the United Kingdom.
