School of American Law — Mediterranean Region

The School of American Law for the Mediterranean Region was launched in Athens, Greece, under the direction of Professor Richard Warner as a cooperative program among Chicago-Kent College of Law, the law firm KMG LLC, and Educational Management Park LLC. The program has expanded to include other sites in the Mediterranean region.

By establishing special overseas programs for the Mediterranean region, Chicago-Kent, with its local partners KMG and Educational Management Park, encouraged the local legal community to meet the challenges of effective professional integration into the globalized legal marketplace.

The School of American Law (SAL) program is the first—and so far the only—program of its kind in the whole Mediterranean region and provides a unique study structure for law practitioners. The complete program encompasses two components:

  1. SAL in-country study
  2. LL.M. study in Chicago

The SAL program provides practitioner lawyers, litigators, mid- and high-career public servants, corporate lawyers, recent graduates and future lawyers with the superior quality of U.S. legal education by offering different contemporary courses delivered exclusively by the faculty of Chicago-Kent.

The SAL program covers all the major contemporary disciplines, such as International Business Transactions, E-Commerce, Online Contracting, U.S. & EU Privacy Law, Intellectual Property Law, Patent Law, IP Assets Management, Maritime and International Shipping Law, Introduction to the American Legal System, Legal Writing & Legal Research, Corporate Responsibility, and International Criminal Law. All credits earned through the SAL program are fully recognized by Chicago-Kent College of Law.

Students who successfully complete the SAL program and are approved by our faculty for admission to the LL.M. program in U.S., International and Transnational Law may complete the LL.M. degree in Chicago in one semester.

Applicants must hold a first degree in law and must be proficient in English. All applicants are required to submit an application form as well as a personal essay, law school transcripts, and two letters of reference.
