Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony M. Kennedy will teach for his 27th year in the McGeorge School of Law, University of the Pacific, summer program in Salzburg, Austria. The program runs from July 2 through July 21, 2017.

Justice Kennedy was appointed to the Supreme Court by President Reagan in 1988. Prior to his appointment, he practiced law in Sacramento, and, beginning in 1965, taught Constitutional Law as a member of the McGeorge faculty.

Law students who register for the Salzburg Summer Program will have the distinctive opportunity to take Freedom of Expression in Europe and the U.S., a course that is co-taught by Justice Kennedy and Professor Sionaidh Douglas-Scott, professor of European and Human Rights Law at Oxford University School of Law.

The three-week program in Salzburg offers international and comparative law courses in public and commercial law fields to law students who want to expand their understanding of international issues that increasingly impact legal practice everywhere.

McGeorge Professor Christine Manolakas will teach Survey of International Tax. International Dispute Resolution will be taught by Joseph Smallhoover, Partner at Bryan Cave LLP, Paris. Professor Smallhoover has practiced law in the United States, France, Germany, and Belgium for 30 years and is the Chair of the McGeorge International Board. Professor Patrick Warto from the University of Salzburg will teach European Union Law for International Business.

Classes are held in the Law Faculty building of the University of Salzburg, located in a renovated 16th century palace in the heart of Salzburg's historic old town. Salzburg has been the site of the McGeorge's annual summer program on International Legal Studies since 1974. In addition to law students and graduates from the United States, the program also enrolls a substantial number of students from other countries.

Registration is open until March 1, 2017. Register here.
