Summer (state-side) innovations at law school

I do not feel it is summer until the Supreme Court issues all the decisions I am still eagerly awaiting.  Still, empty halls (except when the BarBri class lets out) and easier parking makes it easy to tell that it is summer in law school land.  I have long thought that summer is an under-utilized time for law school innovation, although all the professors and students that head for various world-wide summer programs surely would disagree.

At Ohio State, the summer brings a slate of intriguing classes for students and a brown-bag lunch series for faculty, but these activities are obviously not ground-breaking.  OSU does have an innovative Washington DC summer program pioneered by Professor Peter Swire, but I do not get to enjoy its excitement while at work in the Buckeye state. 

Perhaps readers might report on other distinctive or innovate law school programming taking place during the summer here in the US. Do tell, dear readers, if you know of unique summer happenings at law schools.

UC Davis has run for a dozen or so years an amazing program for foreign lawyers, bringing together practitioners from Europe, Asia, and Latin America into classes led by very strong law professors largely from West Coast law schools (Davis, Berkeley, and others).

Foreign lawyers can obtain an L.L.M. over multiple summers (typically 4).

If you're a foreign lawyer interested in applying to the program, you can locate details here:
