Program Notes
This program is highly competitive and will accept only a limited number of applicants. Interview appointments and acceptance decisions are at the discretion of the faculty director.
All applicants must have a valid passport by the program’s application deadline. Your passport’s expiration date must be more than six months after the program ends.

Traveling and studying abroad at this time poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad must be prepared to adapt to evolving situations and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country which are subject to change at any time.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) and world events as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates. If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students.
Program Description

Study Business Law on a comparative basis for the U.S. and Australia in Australia, a beautiful, western democracy loaded with cultural and business sites, as well as interesting legal venues. Students will enjoy the sights and sounds of Sydney and Canberra.

Based in Sydney, you’ll interact with political, legal and business leaders from both the U.S. and Australia as you study the history and foundational institutions and principles that underpin the U.S. and Australian legal systems, with particular emphasis on business law. Students will also learn about current legal issues in Australia and explore these in critical and comparative perspective. There is no assumed knowledge for this course and no pre-requisites. This will be experiential learning incorporating visits to government offices, parliament, the courts and various businesses. This winter session program typically takes a variety of excursions cultural venues, historic sites, and scenic wildlife parks.

Students reside in double rooms in a Sydney hotel or apartment complex. All meals will be provided except during scheduled free time.

Winter in the U.S. is summer in Australia, so this is your chance to learn comparative business law, experience the beautiful weather, sights and sounds of Australia, and enjoy an unparalleled life experience with fellow Blue Hens.

The Program Fee includes housing and some meals, all excursions and related transportation, and international medical insurance. Students are responsible for the remainder of their meals.

The Program Fee does not include airfare to/from Australia, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Sydney, Australia. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimated airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.
