For more than 30 years, the University of Iowa College of Law has operated an intellectually stimulating and culturally rewarding international and comparative law study abroad program in France. The program begins in Paris where students spend several days visiting the courts, the Paris Bar Association, and a law school with speakers including prominent judges and lawyers. Participants then travel to Arcachon for the remainder of the program. Arcachon is a scenic seaside town, ideal for study and exposure to French culture. It is also located less than an hour from Bordeaux, a French city well known for its rich history and touristic appeal, where students will also visit the National School of Judges.
