We are pleased to announce the Program on Law & Government's annual Summer Institute at WCL is returning in 2021! This year's course is title "Comparative Public Law," and will examine the role of courts, regulatory entities, and administrative processes in countries around the world. Following a year in which we have seen COVID-19 push administrative states to their limits, this course presents an excellent opportunity for students to learn from experts in the field about ways different approaches succeeded and failed around the world. We encourage all students considering summer courses to see our flyer and reach out with any additional questions!
