Buenos Aires, Argentina
JULY 14 - AUGUST 9, 2013
Argentina is an ideal location for study abroad. As one of the fastest growing economic regions in the world, South America has become a key player in global economic and legal relations. As a result of the creation of MERCOSUR, the South American counterpart to NAFTA, South American companies are well poised to become competitive players on world markets.
Argentina also offers students a rich arena in which to study international human rights as the Argentine people still struggle to face ad redress violations suffered under its former military government.
Located at the mouth of the Río de la Plata, Buenos Aires is a bustling Metropolis shaped by its Spanish and British heritage. Buenos Aires is friendly to non-Spanish speakers and easy to traverse. The sophisticated city of Buenos Aires, with over 10 million people, is the center of Argentina's cultural, economic, legal, and social life. You'll enjoy dusk to dawn nightlife in its exuberant bars, charming street cafes, gourmet restaurants and sophisticated clubs. Your entertainment choices range from soccer to world renown opera, all easily accessible thorough a convenient, easily navigable transportation system, in a city friendly to non-Spanish speakers.

Enrollment Limitations for TU Law Students
Pursuant to ABA regulations, all students admitted to an accredited study abroad program must be certified by their home law school to be in good academic standing.

1. Any student whose GPA is below 2.0 at the end of the student’s first semester will not be permitted to enroll in a summer study abroad program offered by the College of Law. If that student’s cumulative GPA is 2.0 or above at the end of the student’s second semester, the student will be permitted to enroll in any program still available. If the student’s cumulative GPA is below 2.3 at the end of the second semester, the student will be subject to the restriction in part 2 below.
In addition, University of Tulsa Policies and Regulations, Section II.D.2. limit the credit hours that University of Tulsa students may take in a four week summer program if their GPA is below 2.3 at the time of enrollment, as follows:
2. Any student whose GPA is below 2.3 at the time of enrollment in the first 4-week summer study abroad program will only be allowed to enroll in 4 hours of credit. If after receipt of second-semester grades, a student’s cumulative GPA is below 2.3, the student may not enroll for more than 4 hours of credit in any other summer study abroad program.
