Temple University, Rome Campus
The U.S. and EU form the world’s largest combined GDP, offering many legal job opportunities for those legal practitioners who have study abroad experience and international law course background. The Philadelphia and other regional legal markets are no exception, where many employers value and come to expect international legal expertise. Studying in Temple’s Rome summer program will not only increase your competency in international law, but also job and networking opportunities.
The Rome summer program does not conflict with securing a late summer job or internship in the U.S., as students can return as soon as June 19. The Graduate & International Programs office has worked with faculty and the Office of Career Services to identify judges and professors in the Philadelphia area who will provide job opportunities with a late-June start date to students who take part in the Rome session. Moreover, Temple teams with partner law firms to offer a limited number of part-time internships in Rome. Internships are unpaid, but provide a valuable international legal experience. Italian language skills are not a prerequisite for these positions.
Temple’s Rome campus is located on the Tiber River within walking distance of many famous historic sites. Classes are taught in English by American and Italian law professors.
