Summer Study in Shanghai


Current law students, practicing lawyers and law school graduates are welcome to participate. Current law school students must submit a letter from the dean of their law school certifying good standing. Each law school graduate must submit an official certification of graduation. We also invite communication about special interests.


Fees for Summer Study in Shanghai are all-inclusive, covering tuition, books, housing (double room and shared bath), all meals, a three-day excursion to Hangzhou and one-day excursion to Suzhou, field trips and social-cultural activities in Shanghai, certificate of completion to each successful graduate, and six hours of ABA-approved credit or pending CLE credit. Single room and private bath upgrades are available at an additional charge. 

Total cost of the 2015 program is $4,010.


Newly renovated accommodations provided by the all-inclusive program fee are conveniently located right on campus and in the same building as the dining facility, classrooms and computer room. All rooms are fully air-conditioned, and the fee includes the full board.


A completed application with a letter of good standing (for student applicants) and $200 nonrefundable deposit are due March 16, 2015, (after March 16, there is an additional $100 late deposit, if space is available). Final payment is due April 15, 2015. Willamette University reserves the right to cancel the program under extraordinary circumstances, such as lack of enrollment or political emergency. In this circumstance, students will receive a full tuition refund and, whenever possible, our assistance with other arrangements.

“My four-week stay at ECUPL was unforgettable. The food at the café was enjoyable, and the classes gave me a general overview of Chinese law and its issues.”
