Learn more about the Summer in France program.

The program is generally limited to 25 students. Any student in good standing attending an ABA-accredited law school who has completed one year of full- or part-time law study is eligible to enroll. To be accepted into the Summer in France program, a student must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.25. Anyone who is accepted but later falls below these requirements will be withdrawn from the program, even if the program has already started. Tuition money will be refunded, but the student will continue to be responsible for all housing costs and any other costs that might be incurred by the student.
Qualified students will be admitted on a first come, first served basis. This application is not complete until a $250 deposit has been paid (see below).
Non-refundable Deposit
Seats in this program are limited. A student must pay a $250 deposit to hold a seat, which will be credited toward the combined tuition and housing costs, and a student may not withdraw from the Summer in France Law Program once his or her deposit is paid, except in accordance with the Cancellation, Withdrawal, and Refund Policy. The $250 deposit is refundable if a student is not accepted into the program.
Combined Tuition, Fees, and Housing Costs
*2024 tuition, fees, and housing costs will be $8,000. The total must be paid in full by May 20, 2024. The initial $250 deposit will go toward the total fee. Students are obligated for the entire amount once they make the $250 deposit and are accepted into the program, except in accordance with the Cancellation, Withdrawal, and Refund Policy.
Requirements for non-Drake students
An applicant from a law school other than Drake University must submit a written statement from the Dean or other appropriate official of his or her law school, certifying that the applicant is in good academic standing and is not on probation for disciplinary or other reasons. The statement should also indicate that the applicant's law school will accept the credit earned from the 2024 Summer in France Law Program at Nantes, France. The application will not be processed until this statement is received. The applicant is responsible for arranging to receive academic credit from his or her law school for successful completion of the program.
