Professor Cross is trying to coordinate a group of students to take part in a study abroad program in Croatia for the summer of 2013. The program, sponsored by Michigan State University and the University of Dubrovnik, differs from most study abroad programs in that it focuses only on intellectual property law. The program runs from late July to early August, 2013, although students can opt to go for only half that time. All courses are in English. There are no prerequisites, so current 1Ls could easily take part.
For further information, you can look at http://www.law.msu.edu/croatia/index.html. Note that this is the site for the 2012 program. The dates for the 2013 program will be July 24 to August 14.
Interested students should contact Professor Cross, who can provide additional details.
