Rome today is the home of the Italian government and is the site of offices for the European Union, other international institutions, as well as private law firms, banks and corporations. Loyola's Study Abroad Program takes 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.
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.
