The Faculty has for the past several years been part of the internationalist movement that presently animates university studies. In addition to offering numerous student exchange programs and creating study and research programs with a variety of international perspectives, the Faculty also contributes to the diffusion of knowledge by organizing or collaborating in summer schools.
Summer School in Costa Rica
The Université de Montréal Faculty of Law, in collaboration with the Universidad de Costa Rica, is lancing a new summer school in Costa Rica that focuses on human rights law, health law and food security law. The summer school will have a duration of three weeks and excursions of both a cultural and professional nature are planned – among which, a visit to the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.

Summer School in Rio
As part of a strategy to internationalize its training programs, the Faculty of Law is initiating a partnership with the Institute for Technology & Society (ITS) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As the name of the Institute suggests, this program will focus on the regulatory framework of technologies in our societies. Since this is the first edition of the program, the School will span over one week, and upon their return, students will have to present a paper on their Brazilian experience, and contrast it with the situation in Canada, in order to receive the 3 credits associated with this course. Students will be provided with pedagogical instructions before their departure for Rio.
Today’s communication technologies transcend all borders. To gain a better understanding of this new reality, this Summer School Program will introduce students to the situation in an emerging country hosting students and teachers with extremely diverse backgrounds. Though the topic will be explored with a Brazilian perspective, the program will also bring an awareness to international issues linked to the world of networks: students will be led to confront their preconceived ideas associated with industrialized countries with the equally valid perspectives and ideas of other countries to gain a greater understanding of the situation.
Partner institution: The Institute for Technology & Society Rio de Janeiro (ITS Rio)
