An international look at law – one university’s comparative journey

The American legal curriculum traditionally prepares students for practicing law in the United States. Though it may be tempting for law school educators to focus entirely on the American system. But the practice of law is intricately bound to changing legal landscape of the world, and the Duquesne University School of Law has championed that comprehensive view for students.

Their 3-and-a-half week elective course in China at the end of May is a multi-city look at law issues in a comparative context. The most recent Summer Study program featured courses in energy and environmental law and international property law, with additional coursework in Chinese legal history and law. Visits to Chinese universities, law firms, and cultural sites provided students a uniquely comparative view in which to understand the U.S. system as it compares to one of the world’s most powerful and transitional nations.

“China is where everything is today. For us not to be in China is a disservice to our students,” explains Jacob Rooksby, Associate Dean/Professor

Guest lectures, cultural excursions, co-curricular academic engagements, and multi-city travel logistics demanded a careful partnership between Duquesne and WorldStrides. The collaboration identified the areas where WorldStrides’ services could best fit the needs of the unique program. Duquesne’s Associate Dean, Jacob Rooksby, credits this partnership with making their Summer Study of Law possible.

“Planning this is simply too heavy a lift for our faculty,” he explained. “This allows us to teach.”
