Cape Town, South Africa
UF Law Program in South Africa
June 10 – July 12, 2013
Surrounded by mountains and bordered by the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, the breathtaking city of Cape Town is home to UF’s South Africa Study Abroad Program with the University of Cape Town. The program is the only one approved by the American Bar Association with the University of Cape Town. The university is ranked No. 1 in Africa, according to The Times Higher Education World University Ranking.
During the five-week program, students from UF Law and countries throughout Africa study comparative and international law in three, two-credit courses taught by UF and UCT faculty. Students visit historic sites to learn about Apartheid, how it ended and how the new South African constitution is transforming the country by protecting equality, dignity and the freedom of all South Africans. Students consistently relate that the program enriched their legal education beyond expectations.
