Law: International Human Rights

May 26 - June 9, 2018

Thank you for your interest in Catholic University’s International Human Rights Summer Law Program in Rome!  

As the Program Director, it is my pleasure to introduce the program to you.  By participating in this program, you will have the opportunity to earn four credits over a concentrated three week program of study while studying and living in Rome, the “Eternal City.”  Rome is home to the Holy See, a major international advocate for human rights and provider of humanitarian relief throughout the world, as well as the headquarters of the United Nations’ Food and Agricultural Organization and other legal and humanitarian institutions of interest to those studying human rights. In addition, Rome’s historical, cultural, religious, and legal significance make it a perfect setting for a concentrated study of human rights law.

During the three week session, you will be able to select two 2-credit courses from a collection of courses which focuses on different aspects of human rights law:  International Environmental Law; TBA; and TBA.  Formal study will be supplemented with planned visits to local legal institutions and organizations, as well as the opportunity to explore the city of Rome and enjoy some of Italy’s religious, cultural, and historic treasures. At the completion of the program, students will still have over two months free for summer employment before classes commence for the fall semester.  Thus, the program is ideally suited for working evening students, for students with summer jobs commitments, and for those who wish to continue their legal studies by applying to participate in our International Business and Trade Summer Law Program in Cracow.

I invite you to contact us at Italy@law.edu and browse our program website at www.law.edu/summerabroad.  I look forward, once again, to saying “Benvenuto” or “Welcome” to a talented, committed, and energetic group of students when we meet in Rome in May!
