University of Silesia School of U.S. Law

University of Silesia

 

Established in 2015, the School of U.S. Law at the University of Silesia in Katowice, Poland, is a joint project of that university and three U.S. Law Schools: Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, University of Toledo College of Law, and the UA Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law. On the third weekend of each month, University of Silesia students attend an intensive class taught by a faculty member from one of these schools. The curriculum goals are:

1) To acquaint University of Silesia Postgraduates with the fundamental principles of U.S. domestic law and theory from a comparative perspective;

2) To expose University of Silesia Postgraduates to basic skills for researching, writing, and advocating legal issues in the United States;

3) To give University of Silesia Postgraduates an opportunity to experience the pedagogical approaches used by most U.S. domestic law schools.
