United States admittees must be students in good standing at an ABA or State-approved law school who have completed one year of law studies at the time of the summer program. Students must arrange for their home law school to send a transcript and letter of good standing.
Current St. Thomas Law students whose records are already on file need only fill out the application form; the requirements of a transcript and letter of good standing are waived. Candidates from non-U.S. law schools must also have completed one year of legal studies in their home country.
Attorneys admitted or to be admitted to the bar in their respective home countries may also be admitted to the Summer in Spain Program. Non-native English speakers must contact
the program for language certification requirements.
Madrid is one of the cultural capitals of the world. There are about forty museums, the most famous of which, the Prado, and the new Thyssen museums are within walking distance from each other.
The boulevards (such as the Grand Via), and plazas (such as the Puerta del Sol), offer enjoyable strolling and visiting at a myriad of outdoor cafes. Shopping can be done in modern department stores or bargains found at the Rastro bazaar on Sundays. Retiro Park is huge, offers miles of shaded walkways and a variety of entertainment; from lavish Flamenco dancing to strolling musicians and artists who will sketch one's portrait in a matter of minutes.
