Master of Laws (LL.M.) Program in Egypt Temporarily Suspended
The law school’s Master of Laws (LL.M.) program has suspended classes in Egypt due to the protests taking place in that country.
Professor Frank Emmert, who recently returned from teaching in Egypt, says, “At the present time all faculty and IU Law - Indianapolis staff associated with the program have left Egypt and are safe. We will suspend our activities for the time being but hope to be able to resume in the not too distant future, as soon as the situation has stabilized.”
Professor Emmert says, "Please continue to keep our local staff and students and their families, as well as the entire country and its warm and friendly people in your prayers!"
Professor Emmert directs the law school's LL.M. program in Egypt, which began on the campuses of Alexandria University and Cairo University in 2008. Emmert is the John S. Grimes Professor of Law and Executive Director of the Center for International and Comparative Law.
Law school staff memebers, Jake Manaloor, '03, Associate Director for Contracts, Grants & Fundraising, and Terri Cuellar, Director of Technology Services, returned from working on the program in Egypt earlier in January of this year.
