"The HTL Summer Program is a unique experience combining the discussions of an array of legal topics with real-world, practical experiences, all with some of the top practitioners in the field. It is the perfect convergence every student is looking for in a summer experience."

"HTL has offered me lifelong friends and the ability to learn about an industry I was not familiar with."

"What makes the program so amazing is that you get to hear straight from prominent actors in the hospitality field."

"I enjoyed learning about a wide range of legal issues facing the HTL industry from top-notch experts in the field."

"My favorite part of the program was the fact that the instructors and guest speakers all worked in the hospitality industry in some capacity (whether lawyers in law firms or in house) and had real stories to tell based on their experiences."

"HTL offers beneficial opportunities to talk with people in the hotel and tourism industry, and gives real world perspectives."

"HTL allows you to experience and understand hospitality law, and explore careers in hospitality law from every perspective. Whether it's big law, in-house, and/or being at the forefront of the industry; HTL provides you with the substantive knowledge and comprehensive understanding of the unique industry."

"As a presenter last year, I felt it was a great program and great experience."

"Great, caring professor. Lots of good speakers. Laid back and yet informative."

"I remember being enamored by the fact that so many well-positioned experts in the field of hospitality law actually took time from their day to teach a course and share their experiences in the field. Through the HTL program, I made more connections with attorneys and CEOs in the field than I did at several WCL networking events combined."
