Stanford Partner Program

 

Visiting TTLF Summer Research Fellowships

The LLM Program in European and International Business Law has established a partner program with the Stanford-Vienna Transatlantic Technology Law Forum (TTLF), which allows its LLM students to pursue comparative research for their LLM master thesis at Stanford Law School, California, USA. In line with the TTLF's mission, this partner program supports students who write their master thesis on a comparative EU-US business or technology law topic. Students are usually 2-5 weeks at Stanford, depending on the individual research needs. Two students will be accepted per academic year.

Applicants of the Stanford Partner Program are required to submit a cover letter, a detailed outline of the master thesis research topic, a CV, and a proposal date for the research visit at Stanford (possible through August 31, 2018). Applications with a master thesis research topic and a supervisor approved according to the LLM Master Thesis Guidelines are favored. The next application deadline is January 1, 2018.

All applications must be submitted in English and by e-mail to siegfried.fina@univie.ac.at. The selection of the applications will be done by the partner university.

Please contact Professor Siegfried Fina for more details.

International Professional Certificate Summer Program Understanding U.S. Intellectual Property Law

Stanford Law School offers an international summer program in U.S. intellectual property law annually in August. The LLM Program in European and International Business Law established a partner program with this summer program at Stanford.

Stanford Law School accepts four LLM students for this summer program every summer, who do not have to pay any tuition for this summer program. Stanford Law School may accept additional LLM students under favorable conditions by reducing the summer program tuition substantially. All other expenses (flight, accommodation etc) must be covered directly by the individual LLM students. The review of all applications and selection will be done by the partner university.

Summer program participants, who successfully complete this summer program, will receive a Stanford Law School Certificate.

In the summer of 2017, nine LLM students enrolled and successfully completed the 2017 summer program.

The application deadline for the 2018 summer program is February 1, 2018.

This Stanford summer program is recognized as an elective course for the LLM Program in European and International Business Law, with a value of 3 units (6 ECTS).
