Jordan Study Abroad

Jordan Information

We regret to inform that the Jordan Study Abroad Program will not be available in Summer 2014. We expect the Jordan Program to be operational and available to students during Summer 2015. Program dates and additional information will be available in September 2014.



This study abroad program will offer students a unique opportunity to study international and comparative law in Amman, Jordan – a fascinating city located in the heart of the Arab World. For the summer 2014, the Seton Hall Law Jordan Summer Program will operate a five-week summer session at the Columbia University Middle East Research Center (CUMERC) located in West Amman.

Jordanian and International law students will have the opportunity to interact and study together in this unique setting where students will be offered the opportunity to take courses in: 

  1. Constitutional Reform in the Modern Middle East
  2. International Conflict Management
  3. International Human Rights
  4. Islamic Jurisprudence
Note: All classes will be conducted in English and students may register for up to 6 credits (3 classes).

Students will visit Jordanian legal institutions and interact with prominent scholars, judges, and public officials involved with those institutions. This is the only program of its kind offered by an American Law School.

The program will also offer optional tours to historic Petra and other interesting and exciting locations.

This is a unique opportunity to expand your knowledge and understanding of international and comparative law abroad and to explore Jordan - a wonderful and important Middle Eastern nation.
