The Summer Legal Institute is housed in Boston University Study Abroad London at 43 Harrington Gardens, in the heart of fashionable, historic South Kensington, one of the safest and most exclusive districts in London, the capital of Britain and the UK and the largest city in the EU.
As a place to study, few cities match the vibrancy and splendor of London. London is one of the most cosmopolitan cities of the world, home to people of all cultures and backgrounds. As he is so often quoted, Dr. Samuel Johnson once said, "When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life; for there is in London all that life can afford". While the Summer Legal Institute will certainly enmesh you in focused studies, you will also have time to enjoy the attractions that make the city one of the world’s top tourist destinations -- from the over 300 museums, to the city’s enchanting parks, its bounty of shops and chic boutiques galore, and such iconic fixtures as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London. Nightlife abounds at theaters, restaurants, nightclubs and at neighborhood pubs. Your English will improve not just in the classroom but through your immersion in London’s vibrant urban culture and 24/7 buzz.
