New one-year program will emphasize practical knowledge and skills

Loyola University Chicago’s School of Law has announced it will launch a practice-oriented LL.M. program in Rule of Law for Development in September 2011 at the school's John Felice Rome Center in Italy.

According to the law school, the one-year "PROLAW" program is open to US and international law students "who aspire to become advisors working to promote the rule of law in developing countries and countries in economic transition."

The program will be focused on practical knowledge and skills needed by rule of law advisors working in challenging environments to transform legal systems toward the legal empowerment of their citizens.

The program has been supported with a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
