Musee D'Orsay


For many students, the field study assumes the form of a law school seminar and independent study project. The many lectures by EU officials and tours on site enhance the students’ knowledge of the operation of the European institutions, and the students subsequently write research papers on key issues currently affecting the EU. Loyola faculty directs the field study and supervises the research papers. The overall experience substantially deepens the participants’ appreciation of the growing European Union.

Students enrolling for credit (1-3 hours) will register for a LAW 898 (Independent Study) or LAW 899 (Legal Research) under the supervision of a professor. Under no circumstances can a student elect any combination of course numbers L898, L899, or L900 that would result in more than six credit hours.

The EU field study is limited to 20 students. Priority is given to 3L students enrolled in the EU l and Intl. Trade courses. To apply, you must submit:
