GDAE Transnational Law Program - Day 4

The Global Dominican Academic Exchange (GDAE) introduces Dominican students to the American style of liberal arts education and encourages dialogue between Dominican students and their Dominican-American counterparts attending these institutions. The program promotes partnership and entrepreneurship initiatives which foster innovation and stimulate Dominican economic development and international understanding.

Students participating in the University of Georgia (UGA) Transnational Law Program in Athens, Georgia (October 19-26, 2014) took turns sending a daily report of their experiences.  To show just how fun the GDAE program is, we are sharing these reports to inspire others to attend! If you are interested in applying, please read more information on our website at:

Thursday the 23rd

Today we had our first class in Criminal Law, taught by Professor Cook, which consisted of two hours with the teacher that were truly inspiring, because apart from being a great professor, he has experience as a Prosecutor, which gave us, as exchange students, a whole new opportunity for in-depth exposure to the criminal code in the United States. After that we went to our last International Law class with Professor Amann, who as always, taught the class with serenity and concern that her students understand and learn the material.

That day we had planned to go to the Outlets, but Professor Cook invited us to his Evidence class, so we decided to postpone our outing for the next day in order to take advantage of a class that wasn’t on the program. The coordinator of the program also encouraged us to accept Professor Cook’s invitation. We sat in on the class in a Faculty room with some of the university’s law students. The experience was tremendous. The professor first introduced us to his students then proceeded with the class.

After leaving the class we took a bus to Georgia Square Mall where we spent the day ambling around the entertainment center.
