New Student e-Bulletin

The New Student e-Bulletin provides admitted students with information on the visa application process, the Italian permit to stay, Fall orientation, course registration, tuition and fees, and health insurance, as well as other details essential to preparing for the start of the upcoming academic year.

Health Insurance

PROLAW students are automatically enrolled in a specialized emergency medical insurance coverage plan for the duration of the program, as per University policy. The cost of the insurance will be automatically billed to the student accounts as part of the Mandatory Fees. A waiver of this insurance fee is only granted to EU students with a valid EU health insurance card. Insurance coverage is provided by Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI), an organization dedicated to providing insurance specifically to students travelling abroad. PROLAW will email students the CISI ID card prior to the start of the program and students should carry their CISI ID card at all times while abroad. To learn more about the policy and coverage, please visit this link: CISI information and resources.


There is no resident housing at the John Felice Rome Center campus for graduate students. Most students live in conveniently located long-stay residences or private apartments in the area close to campus. Admitted students need to make their own arrangements for housing directly with the residences or landlords. PROLAW will provide a list with information on housing options upon admission.

Student Handbook

The PROLAW Student Handbook provides details on academic policies and procedures and many of the available student services and resources. Key provisions of the handbook will be highlighted during the New Student Orientation. Each student is responsible for knowing and understanding the information contained within their respective handbook as well as provisions displayed on the School of Law’s website at www.luc.edu/law.

All students of Loyola University Chicago are expected to uphold the Loyola University Chicago School of Law's Code of Student Conduct and the Loyola University Chicago Community Standards.
