ORLANDO, Fla.- Florida A&M University (FAMU) Professor Jennifer Smith joined a group of law professors participating in a study abroad program in The Hague, Netherlands. Professor Smith taught Comparative Analysis of Global Marijuana Laws at the International Institute of Social Studies.
“Considering cutting-edge legal issues in cannabis law with students in the Netherlands was a unique experience,” said FAMU Law Professor Jennifer Smith. “The opportunity to teach brilliant minds, while exploring such a beautiful country, was a wonderful adventure.”
Stetson University’s College of Law hosted the study abroad program that is providing an opportunity for students to study in The Hague, Netherlands.
“We are proud of Professor Smith for representing the strength of our faculty to students from law schools across the country as well as to audiences across the globe,” said FAMU Law Interim Dean Nicky Boothe Perry. “Our students are encouraged to participate in summer study abroad programs for the tremendous intellectual and cultural experiences they provide. Along with being in the Netherlands, our students are also studying in South Africa, Italy, France, and England this summer.”
The Hague is recognized globally as a center for international institutions and tribunals. During the program, students lived and studied at the International Institute of Social Studies.
“The course was very informative, and I was amazed at the variety of legal areas that intersect with marijuana law, such as professional responsibility, employment, taxes, intellectual property, immigration and bankruptcy,” said Alexis Tucker, FAMU Law second-year student from Atlanta.
The participating law programs included FAMU Law, Charleston School of Law, Roger Williams University School of Law, Washington University School of Law, Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad College of Law, Oklahoma City University School of Law, Mercer Law, Elon Law, and the University of Tulsa College of Law.
