The Cape Town Summer Study Abroad Program is open to law students who have successfully completed the first or second year of law school at an ABA-accredited law school. Individuals who have completed their J.D. course work at an ABA-accredited law school also can participate in this program. Non-MU students must submit a letter of good standing from their registrar or dean of students.
Although this program is accredited by the American Bar Association, the acceptance of any credit or grade for any course taken in this program is subject to a determination by a student’s home school. It is unlikely that participation in the South Africa Study Abroad program may be used to accelerate graduation. For more information on this matter, students must contact their home schools to review this issue in light of ABA Standard 304, Interpretation 304-4.
This program includes South African law school students from the University of the Western Cape.
