In summer 2017, Rome Program participants visited the Corte Suprema di Cassazione (the Supreme Court of Italy), the Carabinieri Art Crime Headquarters, and the Villa Giulia National Etruscan Museum. They engaged in a roundtable discussion about a recent Italian Constitutional Court decision with their Italian peers, professors, and practitioners, and enjoyed a gourmet walking food tour of Prati. They spent their free time exploring the landmarks of Rome and Italy. Watch our video from the 2017 Rome Program here.

The 2018 Rome Program will run from May 27 to June 26, 2018.

Career Development Counselors work with St. John’s Law students to obtain legal internships and research assistantships, among other rewarding positions, in the Tri-State area after the Rome Program concludes.
