The Berlin Program is unique among the many law school summer programs. The Program is a joint venture between Tulane Law School and the Institut für Anwaltsrecht of the Humboldt University Law Faculty in Berlin. Sixty American and Canadian students are admitted through Tulane and 60 international students are admitted through Humboldt. This allows U.S. and Canadian students to experience mediation in an international setting with students from all over the world. Tulane admitted 44 students to the 2015 program.
The Program is conducted entirely in English. Fluency in English is a prerequisite for students who are admitted through Humboldt. These international students are selected competitively; they are highly qualified; and have distinguished academic records at their law schools.
Berlin is uniquely cosmopolitan with cultural attractions that few other cities can match. Berlin was recently described as one of the great undiscovered cities in Europe. It was listed as No. 4 on the New York Times recommendations of the top 50 places to visit in 2011. Berlin is a wonderful city with world-class museums, historical sites, outstanding contemporary architecture, good restaurants, and reasonable prices. Past participants have greatly enjoyed Berlin's vibrant nightlife and avant-garde art scene.
The two-week Program focuses on the cutting edge of alternative dispute resolution in a cross-cultural setting. The 3 credit hours involve a combination of workshops, role-play exercises, lectures, and other presentations. Each workshop group is diversified to contain as many nationalities as possible, creating an international experience like no other program of its kind.
