International Perspectives Course

Each spring, the Metro Growth Center sponsors International Perspectives on Urban Law and Policy (LAW 7397) in which distinguished scholars from around the world lead small, focused seminars about land-use planning and environmental law in their countries.

The course is taught by three visiting professors. It is available to law students and graduate students from both Georgia State University and Georgia Institute of Technology’s School of City and Regional Planning, and there are no pre-requisites.

Interested students should register for LAW 7397, which is offered as a two- or three-credit hour course. Students seeking to earn two credit hours will take an exam after each visiting professor’s seminar, for a total of three exams. This year, students may participate in a study abroad program in Istanbul, Turkey over the spring break week (March 16-22, 2015) for an additional credit hour.
