FAMU College of Law students enrolled in Professor Alford’s 1 credit Directed Individualized Study course attended class during the Spring 2017 semester once per week, culminating in a five-day, four-night trip to Havana, Cuba from March 5-9, 2017 with the Stetson/FAMU Spring Break in Cuba study abroad program. The course, “The Cuban Legal System and Society,” provided law students the opportunity to study the historical underpinnings of the Cuban legal system and society, including developing an understanding of the current legal system in Cuba. Students gained a substantive understanding of Cuban laws, U.S.-Cuba policy, Cuban society, and current legal issues relating to Cuba with particular emphasis on the topical areas selected by the students to complete their required paper to fulfill the course requirements.

 

This Cuba Spring Break Study Abroad program served as a step toward realizing Florida A&M University’s Strategic Initiative 5: Enhance and sustain an academic and social environment that promotes internationalism, diversity, and inclusiveness.
