The 2015 Oxford Summer Program will be held from July 5 to August 8. Students will live, attend classes, and take meals in historic Brasenose College, which is located on Radcliffe Square in the center of Oxford. Founded in 1262, Brasenose College's list of famous alumni includes Monty Python's Michael Palin and current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron.
The 2015 Program offers five courses for a total of 12 credit hours. Students must enroll in at least 4 credit hours but may not exceed 6 credit hours or enroll in classes that meet more than 220 minutes a day in total.
The courses will be taught by American and English faculty and will be letter graded, with a final examination or paper. Credit in all courses will be granted by the University of Oklahoma College of Law.
For the first four weeks, classes will meet Monday through Thursday, leaving several long weekends for travel and sight-seeing. In addition to the class offerings, the Program will also offer formal and informal activities for students and faculty. Scheduled program activities currently include a Champagne reception on the evening of arrival, a field trip by motor coach to "Legal London", and "High Table" dinners to open and close the program. These activites are included in the cost of the program.
The 2015 Program is limited to 35 students.
