In late June, Campbell Law School students embarked on a five-week summer program, where they were joined by Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law students and Chapman University Fowler School of Law students at Sidney Sussex College in Cambridge, England.

The historical setting in Cambridge became the backdrop for the students’ comparative study of U.S., British and European Union law.

The group explored iconic landmarks, including the Inns of Court, Westminster Parliament, Buckingham Palace and the famous Big Ben in London, according to Aleea Winston ’25.

The group engaged in elective classes after completing “Law & History of the European Union.” Engaging in a Shakespeare Trial Advocacy master class was a highlight, followed by a memorable workshop with a talented actor from The Globe Theater, according to Winston.

Beyond cultural experiences, the students delved into “Global Issues: Education as a Human Right” with Campbell Law Professor Lisa Lukasik and ¬†studied “The Art of Persuasion” with Cumberland Law Professor Kerry McInerney.

Campbell Law Dean J. Rich Leonard arrived in Cambridge to lecture students as the program concluded in late July.
