The Venice Summer Program
July 1- July 25, 2013
The Summer program in Venice is open to Wake Forest law students, as well as law students from other U.S. law schools.
The Venice program runs for four weeks during the month of July. The 2013 program will be from July 1-July 25, 2013. The mandatory date of arrival is Saturday, June 29, 2013. Two courses are offered, each for three credit hours. You may enroll in only one of the courses, which are both designed for students who have completed their first year of law school.
The program introduces students to topics of European and comparative law. Expected enrollment is 15-25 students from U.S. law schools, and classes include a similar number of Italian law students.
In the past, students have visited courts, law offices, government buildings, and sites around the Venetian lagoon, according to the content of the courses taught. Students in both courses will have the opportunity to interact with Italian students, Wake Forest Alumni as well as other distinguished law professors and guests
Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers, the recently retired President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, will be visiting and guest lecturing in both summer courses. Lord Phillips was the President of the Supreme Court of the UK from October 2009-October 2012. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to learn from Lord Phillips this summer!
