Study abroad in Rome! Imagine yourself studying law amongst some of the greatest historical landmarks in the world – the same places as emperors and kings once stood. This year's program features United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg as a guest lecturer.
The study abroad program offers unique learning opportunities to law students that will help them:
Learn first-hand about the Italian government and European Union.
Gain a deeper understanding of comparative and international law and business culture.
Talk with representatives from private law firms, banks and corporations about law and business in Italy.
