Registration Opens for Summer Program in Israel

How would you like to float in the Dead Sea, visit the City of David, or walk through Hezekiah’s tunnel all while earning course credit and learning about Israel’s government and legal system firsthand?

Law and government students interested in joining Professors Robert “Skip” Ash and Joseph Kickasola for Regent University School of Law’s summer program in Israel, May 18 - June 6, 2012, are encouraged to register immediately while space remains.

At a recent interest meeting held in Robertson Hall, program faculty and previous Israel program participants discussed their experiences attending the summer program in Israel.

Scott Lambert, a current 3L, described the Israel program as being “more than a tourist trip.” Lambert highlighted the program as providing “good exposure to government issues” and said he had no problems walking around Jerusalem either during the day or evenings. “I felt totally safe,” he said.

Olivia Summers, a current 2L, agreed. “It was an amazing trip.” Summers said. “You really get to meet some incredible people and there’s never a dull moment.”
Kirk Schweitzer, a current 2L, noted that the itinerary was preplanned so that students visit diverse sites of interest together. He added that the “hotels are top notch” and the “food was amazing.”

Students in the program will have access to areas that are usually unavailable to the typical tourist and enjoy full itinerary of historical sites and museums.

The cost of the program has decreased from last year with total cost - including cost of coursework, breakfasts, dinners, and day trips and more – at roughly $6,850.
