Jepson at Cambridge Summer Program

Jepson at Cambridge is a summer program offered by the Jepson School in collaboration with the University of Richmond School of Law, which has held a summer program in England for more than 35 years. Students spend four weeks studying at Emmanuel College, Cambridge University. Students participate in classes, lectures and out-of-town trips to examine law and leadership in an international context and to experience the rich intellectual and cultural history of England.

Meeting an international political leader, analyzing the leadership style of an international corporation, and punting along the River Cam are all experiences students can have during the program.


The program is open to all students at University of Richmond, including graduating seniors. Although there are no specific criteria for acceptance, students with a strong academic record and an interest in law are particularly well suited for the program.


The curriculum changes every summer. Courses are taught by Cambridge faculty.

About Emmanuel College

Founded in 1584 and located in the Cambridge city center, Emmanuel College is one of more than 30 constituent colleges of the University of Cambridge. Its early graduates were among those who settled New England in the first half of the 17th century, not least of whom was John Harvard, namesake and first benefactor of Harvard University. London is only 50 miles away and is served by frequent fast train and bus connections.

Application Process

Students are invited to attend an information session in the fall semester. Interested students should submit an application together with a non-refundable $150 deposit to Dr. Kristin Bezio no later than Feb. 15. Enrollment is limited, so priority will be given to those who apply early. Applicants receive an e-mail notification of their application status in March.
