The Venice Summer Program

Wake Forest University’s Venice home, Casa Artom

Venice Study Abroad

July 3 – July 27, 2023

This summer program in Venice is open to Wake Forest law students, as well as law students from other U.S. law schools.

The program takes place with the cooperation of our academic partners at the University of Padua led by Professor Bernardo Cortese. There will also be occasional class meetings held in the historic law school of the University of Padua, which was the second law school founded in Italy, making it the second oldest law school in the world. Law students from the University of Padua will be enrolled in the class to make this a very special cross-cultural legal experience. Getting to know the Italian students, learning from them, and exploring Italy with them has always been a highlight of the Wake Law study abroad experience.

Interested Italian students should contact the program’s co-director Professor Bernardo Cortese at the University of Padua. (The Wake Forest School of Law and the Faculty of Law of the University of Padua have an agreement for cooperation in teaching activities, research initiatives and academic exchange – including the summer program in Venice.)
