It is way too hard to pinpoint a favorite part of the program; everything was so incredible! This was a great chance to get to know a couple of my professors from KU in a completely unique environment, meet other excellent professors, interact with other students that were in my program or other programs, and broaden my world views. The place itself (Istanbul) was beautiful and I cannot wait to go back! When people think of Turkey, vacation generally does not come to mind, but Istanbul's culture, people, and landscape is one of a kind!

The professors were fantastic. They didn't overload us with material during our time, but included enough academic material and experiences so we weren't just paying for an expensive sightseeing tour.

Go into this program with tolerance and an open-mind.

When going to law school, the majority of students focus on only U.S. courts and pay no mind to foreign or international courts. This experience broadened my world view and made me realize that the U.S. system is only one out of many and there are courts on a global scale. It is very humbling to find out we are but one piece in a massive picture!

I loved being so far out of my element; learning how to get around Ortakoy, learning Turkish and getting used to a new culture in a short amount of time. I think this study abroad program offers students a unique opportunity to get a one on one learning experience from your professors, including the dean of the law school! We had the opportunity to learn Turkish criminal law from one of the authors of the Turkish criminal code (Professor Yenisey) .
