Special Activities and Events

There will be a number of special activities and events during the period of time of the Summer Law Program in Barbados.

Land and Sea Safari

As part of the program orientation, students will spend a day on a land and sea safari. The morning safari will take us sightseeing, particularly in less accessible regions of the island’s interior hills and its rugged, Atlantic east coast. Then, conditions permitting, the group will enjoy an afternoon catamaran cruise including an open bar, lunch buffet, and snorkeling with sea turtles. The Land & Sea Safari is included in the cost of tuition.

Oistin's Fish Fry

No stay in Barbados is complete without Friday night out at the massive fish fry at Oistin's, at the southern end of the island. In the festival-like atmosphere, you can eat your fill of Caribbean delicacies and enjoy regional music and dancing.

Weekly Social

Students will enjoy an optional weekly social opportunity with one or both professors, usually on Thursday evenings, when classes are done for the week.

Class Field Trips

As part of the curriculum, students will enjoy two field trips to legal institutions in Barbados. The destinations vary from year to year and will be arranged by your faculty.

Small-Group Outings

Students often make their own weekend arrangements for surfing lessons, stand-up paddle-boarding, catamaran cruises, cave tours, beaches, snorkeling, and nightlife, but an on-campus student activities office is available to help with some of those arrangements when desired.

"I absolutely loved studying abroad in Barbados. I enjoyed learning about the laws of another country and learning about the Bajan culture. It was also very nice to spend some time on the beach while still taking classes through Washburn Law!" - Ginger Wells, '13
