IES Abroad European Union January Term - Themes of Comparative Law: A European Perspective

Taught in English, this program gives you the chance to visit important landmarks and immerse yourself in law like you never have before. Based in the historical city of Freiburg, Germany, this unique program introduces you to law studies with a special focus on the European heritage and contemporary European culture of law and justice. As part of your coursework, you also visit cities like Strasbourg, Luxembourg, and Frankfurt to see first-hand what you're learning about in the classroom. Europe will be your classroom. Imagine visiting the European Parliament and discussing current social and political issues with EU officials, or getting to meet with local legal experts to discuss contemporary topics in European law. Welcome to study abroad! You participate in three one-week-long modules, that delve into topics such as human rights, arbitration, and international dispute settlement in European countries. You conclude your January term abroad by participating in a Moot Court with your fellow students. We want you to feel at home in your host city, so we do everything we can to help you integrate into life in Freiburg. From cultural events at our Center to tours of the city and local sites of interest, IES Abroad is there to provide all the on-site support you need.

It is impossible to avoid the past in Rome. It eagerly waits for you around every corner, hoping to intrigue you with a worn-down step, surprise you with an unexpected fountain, or inspire you with soaring architecture. Come study Rome’s unmatched historical and artistic past while simultaneously learning about its modern role in international politics and business. No matter what your current level of Italian language proficiency is, this program is for you. Students enroll in an Italian language course as well as four additional courses, taught in both English and Italian. If you have four or more semesters of Italian language, you can enroll in our Advanced Italian Studies Program, which is designed to be a full immersion experience including Italian-taught courses, an Italian-only language pledge, and more. Rome will be your classroom. Can you imagine places like the Vatican, the Pantheon, the Forum, or the Colosseum being part of your education? Our courses are experiential in nature, and we organize more than 150 course-related excursions each semester to historical, artistic, and cultural sites that take advantage of the city’s many opportunities. You can also enroll in courses at a local university, where you will experience first-hand the Italian educational system. Maybe you’ll even make some Italian friends while you’re at it. If you want to become familiar with the local practices, work culture, and build professional relationships with Italians, enroll in an internship or social action placement. These are unique opportunities for you to build an international résumé as you practice the language and develop your professional and personal skills.
