The African continent is the second largest in the world, the second most populous, and rich in natural resources. As such, the African continent has raised many legal issues in environmental law, human rights law, humanitarian law, international trade, and maritime law, to name a few. American University Washington College of Law offers students the opportunity to study in South Africa to learn and apply their skills in this vital region of the world. South Africa's history makes it a particularly interesting place to study law and provides students with a unique perspective on legal practice.
