Czech/Slovak Study Tour
Intro Heading link
Each fall since 1993, (except in 2020 and 2021 because of the COVID-19 outbreak), UIC Law has arranged a 10-day study tour to the Czech and Slovak Republics for American lawyers, judges, and others who are interested in Czech and Slovak politics and culture. Participants visit sites in the Czech Republic, especially those with a legal significance, including the Czech Bar Association, the courts, and other government agencies. The tour often includes short visits to other nearby countries, including Germany, Austria, Poland, Hungary, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.
Members of the group make presentations to the law students at Masaryk University in Brno on United States law. These lectures are enthusiastically received by the students. During the trip applicants are interviewed by professors from UIC Law for selection as exchange students for the following year. The school also hosts a reception in Brno for prospective exchange students, past exchange students that have returned to the Czech Republic, professors from the law faculty at Masaryk University, and other friends of the Law School.
