Salzburg, Austria, has been the site of Pacific McGeorge's annual Summer Program on International Legal Studies since 1974.

Justice Anthony Kennedy has taught in Salzburg Summer Program for all but one of the past 23 years. He taught Constitutional Law as a member of the Pacific McGeorge faculty from 1965 until his appointment to the Supreme Court by President Reagan in 1988. This is Justice Elena Kagan's first time teaching with the Summer Program. She was previously Dean of Harvard Law School and Solicitor General of the United States.

The justices will teach Fundamental Rights in Europe and the United States along with Professor Sionaidh Douglas-Scott of Oxford University. The program runs July 7-27, 2013, and offers international and comparative law courses in public and commercial law fields. Classes are held in the Law Faculty building of the University of Salzburg, located in a renovated 16th Century palace in the heart of Salzburg's historic Old Town.
