This coming January 9-16, 2016, several Marquette Law School faculty and I will accompany a group of law students for an International Conflict Resolution winter break trip to Cuba. The trip will focus on economic, religious, social and political issues during this interesting time as Cuba and the US begin renewing diplomatic relations. The itinerary will include meetings with journalists, leaders of the Catholic church, urban planners, economics experts, a former Cuban diplomat, lawyers and university students. Participants will also experience traditional Cuban cuisine, tour Havana and learn about the Cuban baseball program.
An application, and more information, can be found by clicking this link.
Space is limited, and priority will be given to 3L students and to students with international travel experience. Please note, this is NOT a class and no course credit will be given!!
This trip is yet another opportunity for Marquette University Law School students to travel to a foreign country in order to observe issues relating to international conflict resolution first hand, while interacting personally with local leaders. The Law School also offers a class on International Conflict Resolution on a biennial basis that includes a trip to Israel.
