European Summer Law Program

Make your university career more exciting by travelling to Macerata, Italy, for the International Summer Law Program.

Murdoch is offering law students the opportunity of a lifetime to study in Italy during the European summer. At the centre of Europe - historically, culturally and legally - Italy has strongly influenced the development of international law, via Roman Law. In recognition of an increasingly globalised world, Murdoch is offering a structured program at one of Europe's oldest universities in Macerata.

The program offers up to three units focused on Comparative Law, European Union Law and International Trade Law. With the unit points counting towards the participants degrees, this unique opportunity allows students to broaden their knowledge of the law beyond the domestic sphere.

The program is run intensively throughout the winter semester break and into the second semester. The face to face teaching component and exams of the program will be run for three weeks in the winter break at the historical campus of the Universit√† di Macerata in Italy.  Other course work such as assignments, readings, any other engagement with the course topics and a final exam will have to be completed before and/or after the intensive teaching period as advised by the unit coordinator and in the unit outline.

The 2020 program will run from Sunday 28th June 2020 - 16th July 2020 (please confirm start dates if taking less than three units)

Applicants will only be considered if they have fulfilled pre-requisites and submitted all relevant forms along with their applications. Due to the limited number of spots available in the program, applications will be reviewed in order of receipt.
