Lausanne, Europe at Your Fingertips
Arguably the most beautiful city in Switzerland, Lausanne is also perfectly situated for travel throughout the rest of Europe. Our host, the venerable University of Lausanne, boasts views of both the Alps and Lake Geneva. Less than an hour away, Geneva will be a resource for both educational and recreational purposes.
An International City
Home to numerous international organizations such as the International Red Cross, the World Health Organization, and the World Trade Organization, Geneva is a center of global business. Chosen as the seat for the League of Nations in 1920, Geneva has maintained a reputation as a cosmopolitan city that welcomes people from all over the world.
In conjunction with the Faculty of Law and Criminal Justice of the University of Lausanne, the program will offer four to six two-week courses, with which Widener Law students may earn up to six credits in all. (Please note that the courses offered may vary from year to year.) Courses are designed in a two-week format, each yielding one or two academic credits for Widener students. Students may enroll in courses for one or both of the two-week segments scheduled for Lausanne. If only one segment is chosen, students are free for other undertakings, including enrolling in Widener’s Venice program.
