SwitzerlandFlagXSmall Widener Law’s 2014 Summer Abroad program in Lausanne, Switzerland is under way and will run until June 13th. The program, operated in conjunction with the University of Lausanne, takes students to a breathtakingly beautiful city and intellectual center that is home to the International Olympic Committee.

Widener students have been traveling to Switzerland for a unique and exciting summer program since 1991, and specifically to Lausanne since 2009. Course offered during this year’s program include International Criminal Law, Law and Practice of the World Trade Organization, and Trading In and With Europe.

The program in Lausanne affords students the opportunity to explore the surrounding lake and mountainside area or travel into other parts of Europe during downtime from classes. Popular destinations include Geneva and Montreux, home of the world famous Montreux Jazz Festival, or even trips into neighboring countries France, Germany, Austria, or Italy.

Widener Law is also offering a Summer Abroad program in Venice, Italy that will run from June 16th to June 27th. Students participating in the Venice program this summer will have the opportunity to learn Comparative Corporate Law from Delaware Supreme Court Justice Randy J. Holland, one of America’s most distinguished jurists. Students in the course will compare what other countries are doing in areas of corporate law when confronted by similar issues that have already been decided by Delaware courts.

“It’s really interesting to learn about different approaches,” says Holland, adding, “Venice is a spectacular city and I look forward to again sharing this summer experience with students who are studying through the Widener program.”
