As the seat of power under Roman emperors, later the Papacy, and currently the capital of modern Italy, Rome displays its rich and varied history on every street and in every piazza. The Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, the Tiber River, the Roman Forum, the Vatican - the splendors of Rome await the visitor.
Rome today is the seat of the Italian government and is the site of offices of the European Union and other international institutions, as well as the offices of private law firms, banks and corporations. Loyola's 2015 Study Abroad Program will take advantage of some of these facilities and institutions to introduce students to the study and practice of law in a foreign culture. It is expected that this introduction to comparative and international law will give students a deeper understanding of their own legal culture.
