Yale Law School Latin America Linkage

Summary: Every February students from the top law schools in Latin America travel to Yale Law School for an exchange program that sends the Yale students to Latin America during the summer.

The annual three-week residence program for the Yale Law School Latin American Linkage program started this week. Ten students are selected from the seven leading law schools in Brazil, Argentina, and Chile to travel as representatives to Yale. This year’s selection includes one student currently serving on the Brazilian Supreme Court.

The three-week program started out with a tour of campus and libraries. Instructions were given on how to use digital resources as well as examining rare historical documents and books from Yale’s collection. The Latin American students will also meet with faculty, student leaders, and alumni practitioners. The students will get the opportunity to observe classes and give presentations on their own research and legal problems in their home countries. The students are hosted with Yale students that will in turn stay with the Latin American students when they switch during the summer.
