About the Program
Mississippi College School of Law will host the popular Merida program during winter intersession this year. The program is approximately two weeks long and students will earn three credit hours in international human rights. Students will live and learn at the Hotel del Peregrino, a small boutique hotel in Merida. Merida is the capital city of the Yucatan and an excellent base to explore the Mexican culture through ruin sites and ecological wonders.
The classroom study will be enhanced through visits to local legal institutions and cultural excursions. Anticipated visits to legal and govenrnmental institutions include the Judicial Tribunal Center, the Yucatan State Legislature, and/or the office of the Mayor of Merida. Cultural tours to Chichen Itza and Uxmal are also included in the program.

The program is open to full-time and part-time students at ABA accredited law schools. Participating students must currently be in good standing and have attended law school for at least one year. Therefore, the program is only available to current second and third year students.
