Anthony M. Kennedy, associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, is co-teaching a course on Fundamental Rights in McGeorge's Summer International Legal Studies program for the 24th consecutive year.

Justice Kennedy welcomed 114 American and foreign law students on July 9 to the three-week program in Salzburg, Austria. A member of the McGeorge faculty since 1965, Justice Kennedy first taught the course in Salzburg in 1988. A year later, he taught the course in London then the following year it became a permanent part of the law school's summer offerings in Salzburg.

Professor Sionaidh Douglas-Scott of the United Kingdom's Oxford University School of Law co-teaches the Fundamental Rights course with Justice Kennedy. Other courses offered in the three-week program include The International Business Lawyer, taught by attorney Joseph Smallhoover, and Global Issues in Property Law, taught by McGeorge Professor Ray Coletta.

The Salzburg program is open to ABA-approved or state-accredited law school students who have completed one year of full-time or part-time study.
