It's Truly An International Campus
February 1, 2008
There’s always an international flavor on the Pacific McGeorge campus, but the law school of California’s capital city boasts one of its largest crops of LL.M. and J.D. exchange students this spring.
More than 50 international students from 24 countries are on campus this semester. Some of them are continuing from last semester, another group has come to Sacramento after spending the fall semester at the University of Salzburg in the collaborative LL.M. program, and others began their master of laws studies in January. Sixteen of the Transnational LL.M. students will depart following the first six weeks of the semester for internships with law offices in several U.S. cities as well as in Brussels, Budapest, Hong Kong, Madrid, Shanghai and Vienna.
“One of the most rewarding aspects of the burgeoning growth in our foreign student body is that our own J.D. students get to take classes with these visitors,” said International Programs coordinator Eric McElwain. “It really adds an air of excitement to the classroom as American students get first-hand feedback on legal systems around the world.”
Countries Represented in the Student Body, Spring 2008:
- Georgia ( USSR)
- Ivory Coast
- Saudi Arabia
- United Kingdom
