Friedrich-Alexander-Universität (FAU), Erlangen, Germany, offered a summer program for LL.B. and LL.M. in Commercial Law candidates at SLP from 21 July 2015 to 03 August 2015.
As part of the program, Constitutional Law was taught by Dr. Meβerschmidt; Private International Law and International Contracts were taught by Dr. Rohe; EU Law was taught by Dr. Funke; European Company Law was taught by Dr. Schmolke; World Trade Law and International Investment Law were taught by Dr. Krajewski; Principles of Civil Law was taught by Dr. Spengler; and Islam in Europe was taught by Dr. Thielmann.
As part of cultural experience, SLP students were also taken to Munich, Wurzburg, Bamberg, Frankfurt, and Nuremberg during the program.
FAU has agreed to offer the same program for SLP students in the summer of 2016.
FAU wants to send its law students to a reciprocal summer program at SLP. FAU wants SLP to offer the same courses on Islamic Finance and Islamic Law that SLP offers at KU Leuven and Antwerp, both in Belgium, respectively.
Dr. Rohe [Professor of Law, FAU] will come to teach a short course on comparative law at SLP in September 2015.
As can be seen, FAU and SLP have set up:
- A proper student exchange program; and
- A proper faculty exchange program.
SLP is the only law school in Pakistan that has such an arrangement with a European university.
Also, the fact that both the Belgians and the Germans want SLP to teach Islamic Finance and Islamic Law to their students is the best testimonial to the academic excellence of SLP’s faculty.
