2014 Bologna, Italy Summer Law Program

We are no longer accepting applications.

The Summer Program at the University of Bologna is jointly sponsored by Brooklyn Law School and Loyola Law School of Los Angeles. The Program offers students an opportunity to study a variety of international and comparative topics with distinguished faculty from both American and European law schools. A special attraction of the program is its affiliation with the University of Bologna's Faculty of Law.

The program is scheduled when the University is in session and as a result American students who participate in the program will have an opportunity to interact with Italian students. The two-week program will run from Sunday, May 25 to Saturday, June 7, 2014, while the three-week program will run from Sunday, May 25 to Saturday, June 14, 2014.
