Law School Adds Italy to International Studies Portfolio

MARCH 17, 2008—The Law School is thrilled to add Italy to the growing list of semester exchange opportunities available to its students.

Bocconi University (Università Bocconi), a private institution in Milan, Italy, has a global reputation as a research university in business, economics, and law. In 2007, Bocconi placed 17th on the Top 20 International Business Schools list in the Wall Street Journal.

The new relationship will allow Law School students to pursue courses at Bocconi beginning in the fall of 2008. Among Bocconi's wide range of law courses, many of which are taught in English, are International and European Law, International Trade Law, and Comparative Business and Corporate Law. Courses are available for both fall and spring semesters.

A full list of law courses taught in English is available on the Bocconi University Web site, at http://www.ir.unibocconi.it/coe

"The Law School is very excited about this new exchange," said Muria Kruger, Director of International and Graduate Programs at the Law School. "Bocconi has deep educational roots in business law and economics, and its law courses would be a great opportunity for any of our students who are interested in practicing business law or international law."

In Bocconi, an intensive four-week Italian-language course will be offered to students participating in the program (additional registration fee required). The language course begins approximately one month prior to the start of the term.
