Harris Manchester College, Oxford University, Great Britain
The program with Harris Manchester College at Oxford University - ranked by Times Higher Education as the university with the 6th best reputation in the world - gives BU Law students the opportunity to study international and comparative law at one of the world's great academic institutions. The distinguishing feature of this program relates to how students learn the law: Oxford uses a tutorial rather than a lecture system, which means that students’ "classroom" experiences take place in one-on-one settings with an Oxford tutor. Students take two individual tutorials with Oxford dons, in such areas as public international law, jurisprudence, international intellectual property, comparative contract law and British Administrative law, the British legal system and British government and international/comparative law.
The program runs during Oxford’s "Hilary Term," which begins in January and ends in late March.
