Thanks to a new agreement that the Notre Dame Law School has concluded with the Università Commerciale Bocconi in Milan, Italy, Notre Dame students have a new opportunity to spend a semester or a full year studying abroad.
Bocconi is one of the leading private universities in Europe. While best known for its business-related studies, it offers a full complement of law courses and its law school has an excellent reputation. Extensive portions of Bocconi’s curriculum are offered in English, so there is no foreign language requirement to be able to participate.
Under the agreement announced December 15 by Paolo G. Carozza, Notre Dame’s Associate Dean for International and Graduate Programs, the exchange will be available starting in the fall 2011 semester, for students in either their 2L or 3L year. As with Notre Dame’s London Program, credits earned at Bocconi will count toward graduation requirements at Notre Dame Law School.
