Loyola at a Glance
Moscow meets the Mississippi in international student exchange
July 9, 2010
For the past 17 years, Loyola University New Orleans College of Law students have traveled to Moscow as part of a summer studies program, and now, Loyola will finally play host.
Twenty-eight law students from Moscow State University are visiting the College of Law this week and will engage in several activities including lectures, visits to courts and law offices in New Orleans, city tours and an evening at Rock N’ Bowl, sponsored by the Rotary Clubs of Carrollton, Metairie and Harahan. The students, who will stay in Cabra Hall, will be accompanied by MSU associate professor Gayane Davidyan.
In October 2009, the late College of Law Dean Brian Bromberger was invited to give a lecture at Moscow State University. While there, he and professor Patrick Hugg, director of Loyola’s Center for International Law Programs, began discussions with MSU Dean of Law Alexander Golichenkov to broaden the relationships between the two universities and expand beyond the one-way summer travel of Loyola students to Moscow.
With the assistance of Loyola College of Law professor James Klebba, director of the Summer Legal Studies program in Moscow, an “agreement of cooperation” was signed in April. This month’s visit is the first step in this expanded relationship.
For more information on the visit, contact Klebba at 504-861-5669 or firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the College of Law, contact James Shields in the Office of Public Affairs at 504-861-5888 or email@example.com.
