Bologna, Italy Summer Abroad

Take Your Legal Studies Abroad

The University and City of Bologna, & Italy

THE BOLOGNA SUMMER ABROAD PROGRAM IS FULL AND WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS.

The 2020 Summer Program is sponsored by Brooklyn Law School and hosted by the University of Bologna (Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna). The Program offers students an opportunity to study a variety of international and comparative topics with faculty from Brooklyn Law School and the University of Bologna.  The University of Bologna is the oldest university in the Western world and one of the most prestigious universities in Europe. The study of law in Bologna began in the eleventh century with the revival of the systematic study of Roman Law; today the School of Law is one of Europe’s most respected law schools. A special attraction of the program is its affiliation with the  Law School.

The University is also one of the most distinguished universities in the world. It has a multi-million volume library, as well as the usual facilities of a major institution of higher learning. Classes will be held in the Department of Law building in a modernized air-conditioned classroom that is equipped with internet and audio visuals. The building is close to the law library, “Antonio Cicu”. The library has reading rooms and study areas and will be open to Summer Program participants from Monday through Saturday. In addition, the program will have an office and students will be given access to the computer laboratory at the University. Students completing the program will receive ABA-approved credits.

The University and department of Law building are located in the heart of the old city of Bologna, within walking distance of the major cultural and artistic attractions of the city. The city of Bologna, with a population of approximately 400,000, is the capital of the region of Emilia-Romagna in Northern Italy, approximately midway between Florence and Venice. Bologna is the one of the most attractive and interesting cities in Italy. The old city includes the magnificent Piazza Maggiore, the cathedral, beautiful churches and palaces, museums, a wonderful marketplace, combined with the cafes, and restaurants frequented by the many thousands of students who attend the University. The program is scheduled while the University is in session.

Bologna offers easy access to the surrounding region of Emilia-Romagna and all of Northern and Central Italy. The city is the major rail center of North-Central Italy. Florence (1 hour), Milan (1½ hours), Rome (3 hours) and Venice (1½ hours) are easily accessible by trains that run virtually around the clock. In addition, the beach resorts at Rimini or Ravenna are 1½ hours by train.

Program Details

Accreditation
Brooklyn Law School was founded in 1901, is approved by the American Bar Association (321 North Clark Street, Chicago, IL 60564-7598, phone: 312-988-6738, www.americanbar.org/legaled), through its Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools. The Summer Program in Bologna is approved by the American Bar Association. The Law School’s curriculum is registered with and approved by the New York State Education Department.
Admissions
Eligibility and Acceptance 
Students who are in good standing and who have completed one year of full-time or part-time law study at a U.S. law school at the start of the program are eligible to apply for admission to the program for academic credit. Enrollment in the program is not limited to students from the United States, although occasionally a very small number of students from other countries, including Brazil, Russia, and Italy, have participated. The vast majority of students who enroll, however, are from the United States and the number of citizenship of foreign students that might enroll is impossible to predict. Law students at universities outside of the United States who have completed a year of study and practicing attorneys are also eligible to apply to attend the program. Students from non-U.S. law schools and practicing attorneys will receive a letter from the office of the registrar for completed course work but they will not normally receive academic credit from the program.

We are looking for a diverse group of interesting students who will bring various talents and backgrounds to the Summer Program and who will particularly benefit from what it has to offer. Brooklyn Law School adheres to and supports all legal requirements for non-discrimination and equal opportunity in all of its programs.

You are advised to apply as early as possible and in any event no later than February 21, 2020 in order to secure a spot in the program and hotel accommodations. We will consider applications received after February 21, 2020 as long as space remains in the program. 22-26 students typically participate in the Summer Program.

Good Standing Letters 
Students must be in good standing at their schools in order to be accepted into the Summer Program.

Students from Brooklyn Law School, by signing and submitting their applications, authorize the Registrar's office to verify to us their good standing.

If you do not attend Brooklyn Law School, the Dean or Registrar at your school must let us know that you are in good standing. Letters of good standing are due by February 21, 2020.
Disability Accommodations and Accessibility
Students with Disabilities 
Brooklyn Law School complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended. The Acts prohibit discrimination on the basis of a disability. Students who are requesting disability accommodations must provide supporting documentation.

Brooklyn Law School students should contact Louise Cohen, (718) 780-0377.

If you attend a different law school, ask your law school to provide a letter describing the nature of the accommodation it has provided. The letter should be submitted to Louise Cohen.

Accessibility
Given the difference between Italian law and U.S. law, facilities may not be fully accessible. The University of Bologna guarantees the accessibility of its services to users with special needs, through a direct provision and as appropriate as possible to the specific needs of the users. Please contact the program Coordinator if you have any specific accessibility questions or concerns.
Curriculum & Faculty
There are no prerequisites for these courses. You may enroll in one or both one-credit courses. Students enrolled in International & Comparative Sports Law may earn an additional credit by writing a paper. See course information below.

All classes begin on Monday, May 18, 2020. Final exams will take place on Saturday, May 30, 2020.

Courses

International and Comparative Sports Law (1 credit)
This course examines sports law in an international and comparative context. We will study the ways in which public, quasi-public, and private regulation have interacted, often ineffectively and in tension with each other, in the global sports arena. We will examine the integrity of competitions, the protection of athletes, and the commercialization of sports, and consider reforms that have been instituted or proposed to address these issues. While we will encounter many sports and legal environments in our inquiry, our primary vehicles for studying the subject will be the Olympics, FIFA and soccer generally, and cases raised in the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Switzerland.

Faculty Member:  Professor Jodi Balsam
Jodi Balsam is a Professor at Brooklyn Law School and is a recognized authority on sports law and teaches the Sports Law course at both Brooklyn Law School and NYU School of Law. She writes and speaks on sports law topics, including as co-author of Weiler Roberts’ Sports and the Law, the leading law school casebook in the field. She is on the editorial boards of the Journal of Legal Aspects of Sport and the international sports law blog LawInSport. She is a past-chair and current executive committee member of the Association of American Law Schools’ Section on Law and Sports. In 2019, the National Collegiate Athletic Association named Professor Balsam to the inaugural NCAA Independent Resolution Panel, which hears complex infractions cases that implicate college athletics’ core values.

International Commercial Arbitration (1 credit)
This course will concentrate on arbitration, which is the principle alternative form of dispute resolution to civil litigation. The course will cover the major differences between arbitration and other methods of alternative dispute resolution and will focus on issues relating to international commercial arbitration. Special attention will be given to the European laws on international arbitration and to the rules of the most influential international arbitration institutions (e.g., The International Arbitration Chamber of Milan, The International Chamber of Commerce of Paris, The American Arbitration Association, and The London Court of International Arbitration). Special regard will be given to the 1958 New York Convention on the recognition and enforcement of foreign arbitral awards and its application in the United States.

Faculty Member:  Professor Chiara Giovannucci Orlandi
Chiara Giovannucci Orlandi is the Italian Co-Director of the Bologna Summer Program. She is adjunct professor of Alternative Dispute Resolution on the Faculty of Economics at the University of Bologna. She previously was a Professor of Civil Procedure and of National and International Arbitration at the University of Bologna; Visiting Professor at Paris Ouest la Defense, Nanterre; and Visiting Professor at the University of Pittsburgh, School of Law.

She has authored many articles in the field of Arbitration and Mediation in Italian and foreign law reviews.

Writing a Paper - Option for International & Comparative Sports Law (1 Credit)
This option allows students who are enrolled in International & Comparative Sports Law to earn an additional credit by writing a paper on a course-related topic, under the supervision of the instructor, upon return to the U.S. The paper is in addition to (not in lieu of) the final exam.

Dropping a Course
Students may drop a course at any time, but with no tuition refund on or after April 12, 2020. Students may switch or add courses up until Monday, May 18, 2020.

Books and Class Materials
Students are permitted to use electronic books in the program. However, exams will be handwritten. If you decide to bring a laptop (optional) be sure you have a converter plug that can be used in Italy. The bookstore at Brooklyn Law School will order books for students to purchase.

Course Requirements and Academic Credit
Academic Credit
In order to receive academic credit for a course, students must attend class consistently and complete the final exam for the course. The American Bar Association has strict rules governing class attendance and exam completion in summer study programs. Because of the small number of class meetings, students seeking academic credit for a course may not miss more than one class meeting. Attendance will therefore be taken at the beginning of each class. Each course has an on-site exam after the last meeting for the course. Students seeking academic credit should therefore arrange their travel schedules to ensure they are present in Bologna for the duration of the courses in which they are enrolled and to take the on-site exams at the designated times. The Summer Program begins with an introduction and welcome dinner on Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. and all classes start on Monday, May 18, 2020. Final exams will take place on Saturday, May 30, 2020.

The Law School utilizes a letter-grading system, in which each letter grade has a grade-point equivalent. Grades and grade-point equivalents are as follows: A+(4.33), A(4.0), A-(3.67), B+(3.33), B(3.0), B-(2.67), C+(2.33), C(2.0), C-(1.67), D(1.0) and F(0.00).

Brooklyn Law School Students
For students enrolled at Brooklyn Law School, Brooklyn Law School’s grading system governs the Bologna program. For each course taken, credit will be awarded only if a grade of D or better – as defined by Brooklyn Law School -- is received in the course. The units will be awarded on a "pass" basis. Although the course must be taken for a grade and not on a pass/fail or credit/no credit basis, actual letter grades received in the course(s) will not appear on Brooklyn transcripts and will not be used in computing a student’s weighted cumulative grade point average. Enrolling in this summer abroad program does not preclude Brooklyn Law School students from exercising their pass/fail option during the regular academic year. Brooklyn students may obtain an official transcript from the Registrar's office showing their grade for each course.

Students from other Law Schools
For students enrolled in a law school other than Brooklyn Law School, we will send to the registrar of your own law school an official transcript showing the letter grade you received for each course. In order for us to send this transcript, you must check the appropriate box on the application giving us permission to release your grades to your registrar. We do not send official transcripts directly to students. You should consult with your own law school registrar in advance of the program about the availability of and requirements for receiving transfer credit. Your own registrar will be able to tell you whether transfer credit is available through the program on a Pass/Fail or letter-graded basis.

Following the completion of the program, all students, regardless of where they attend law school, will receive directly from Brooklyn Law School an unofficial transcript showing the letter grade they received for each course.
Tuition, Costs, Financial Aid & Travel Costs
Tuition & Fees
Tuition for the program is $850 per credit, plus a $125 activity fee to cover tours and social events. You may enroll in one or both one-credit courses. Students enrolled in International Sports Law may earn an additional credit by writing a paper on a course-related topic. For more information, please check the Curriculum & Faculty section above. 

Your $400 deposit, which must accompany the application even if you are applying for financial aid, will be credited against your remaining tuition. The Student Accounts Office will notify you via email when the deposit due invoices have been created for tuition and housing deposits for easy online payment. Your full tuition payment is due on Friday, March 13, 2020 and all deposits are non-refundable on that day. See the Estimated Cost of Attendance

Review the Important Dates flyer for information on tuition due dates, withdrawals and refunds.

Financial Aid 
Students who wish to apply for financial aid must first apply to the study abroad program and should submit financial aid applications as early as possible. Summer is considered a separate term for financial aid awarding purposes. Financial aid for the summer term is not automatically awarded based on prior eligibility or acceptance to the program.

Brooklyn Law School Students
Brooklyn Law School students should contact Florence Attino in the Office of Financial Aid at florence.attino@brooklaw.edu, or (718) 780-7915.

More information on summer loans for study abroad is available on our Applying for Aid page.

Students from other Law Schools
Students who are not enrolled at Brooklyn Law School should comply with the section on consortium agreements below.

Federal & Private Loans
Financial Aid in the form of Federal Graduate Plus Loans (GPLUS) may be available for students enrolled in a total of 6 credits or more for summer programs. Thus, students who are enrolled in summer courses or internships for credit in addition to the study abroad program may be eligible for GPLUS Loans. Private Alternative Educational loans may be available for students enrolled in 1-5 credits. Students may borrow loan funds up to the estimated cost of attendance (COA). The COA is determined by the Office of Financial Aid and includes tuition and fees, as well as an allowance for room and board, books and supplies, transportation, and personal expenses. Under no circumstance can financial aid exceed the cost of attendance.

The Office of Student Accounts issues refunds to students for accounts that have a valid credit balance after the Add/Drop period for each semester is over. Please note, if the credit is based on anticipated credits for financial aid, scholarships, or the payment plan, a refund will not be processed until the funds have actually arrived and been posted to the student's account. Direct deposit is the fastest and most convenient way to receive a refund. Sign up for Direct Deposit online through WebAdvisor.

Students borrowing Private Alternative Educational Loans should check with their lender as to the earliest disbursement date for their loans. Tuition costs may be deferred pending receipt of summer aid. However, students must be prepared to pay for some expenses (such as airfare) out-of-pocket before their loan funds are disbursed.

Consortium Agreements
Students who are not from Brooklyn Law School must obtain financial aid for program costs through their home institutions. Students should contact the Office of Financial Aid at their home institution to begin the consortium agreement process. There are several requirements that must be met before financial aid can be awarded and disbursed via a consortium agreement. Students should begin this process immediately after applying to the program.

Consortium agreement forms must be emailed from your home school's Office of Financial Aid to Florence Attino at florence.attino@brooklaw.edu.

Additional Costs 

Meals 
Students are responsible for their meals (the hotels include breakfast). Bologna has many self-service restaurants, fast-food restaurants, bars, cafes, and pizzerias where students can eat for about $15 to $20 per meal. Program participants may also eat in the University's cafeteria. 

Miscellaneous
You should plan to bring a reasonable amount of money to cover personal expenses such as meals, souvenirs, local transportation, etc., as well as to provide a safety cushion for the unexpected. ATMs are available throughout the city. 

Travel 
Students will arrange and pay for their own round trip travel between the U.S. and Bologna, Italy. Several airlines fly from various U.S. cities to Bologna, with connections in London, Paris, Frankfurt and other cities. The Bologna airport (Aeroporto Guglielmo Marconi di Bologna) is approximately 4 miles from the city. Shuttles run between the airport and Bologna's train station every 15 minutes, 5:30 AM to 11 PM daily. Students may also fly to Milan with rail connections to Bologna. 

STA Travel is a travel agency that specializes in student travel. They may offer a lower fare for the summer.
