Each summer, Vanderbilt in Venice allows American and European law students an opportunity to gain an invaluable international perspective. Directed by Professor Michael Newton, Vanderbilt in Venice brings together a maximum of 45 students with three professors to study selected topics in international law in the rich cultural center of Venice, Italy.
Courses are taught in English, and the faculty includes members of the Vanderbilt Law faculty as well as faculty from the University of Venice Ca' Foscari.
Field trips have previously included a tour of the historic cities of Treviso and Verona, a Laguna boat tour to the islands of Burano and Torcello, a visit to a Murano glass factory, and a vineyard tour and dinner.
Vanderbilt in Venice is open to law students and graduates of ABA-accredited U.S. and European law schools. Vanderbilt staff works closely with each student to ensure seamless enrollment and credit transfer to home institutions.
"Venice was fantastic–it was a great opportunity to take smaller classes in international topics, get to know the professors who taught in the summer program, and make friends with people in other sections. We were in Venice when the Brexit vote happened and had an opportunity to get an inside perspective on the dynamics in the EU."
