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 2014 Study Abroad Program will take advantage 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.


Loyola Rome Center Campus: John Felice Rome Center

Loyola has operated the Rome Center of Liberal Arts since 1962.

The landscaped campus contains classrooms, a library, student dormitories, faculty and administrative offices, a chapel, a cafeteria, recreation and exercise rooms, a coffee bar and a basketball court.

Optional Field Study - Strasbourg, France

Strasbourg, a city that has flown many flags as once part of Germany and now a part of France, lies in the beautiful Alsace-Lorraine area of central Europe. The city includes a navigable canal system, many beautiful parks and university grounds, and a magnificent Gothic cathedral. The Council of Europe is seated in Strasbourg, an affiliation of 47 European countries. The European Court of Human Rights, a tribunal of the Council of Europe, is located on the same grounds, along with the magnificent new European Parliament Building of the European Union. 

Luxembourg, an important banking city of the world due to the neutrality of the country of Luxembourg, is also well known as the site of many of the European Union institutions. For our purposes we will concentrate on the European Court of Justice of the European Union which is located in Luxembourg. This charming walled city is the seat of the Luxembourg government and the home of its royalty, the Duke and Duchess.
