Posted: 12-Jan-16 12:08

Students from Marquette Law School will head to Cuba

Marquette University Law School in Milwaukee plans to send 25 students and 3 professors on a week-long international conflict resolution trip to Cuba.

The visit will break diplomatic ground and is intended to improve US-Cuba relations, and is an opportunity for students to learn more about Cuban culture and diplomatic relations.

During the trip, students will learn about social, religious and economic issues and they will also meet representatives of the Archdiocese of Havana as well as visit the University of Havana's Law School.

Many of the students are eager to visit the island country, which has long been off bounds for US citizens. Now that the opportunity has arisen for American students to visit Cuba, it is a safe experience and a great way for them to learn about the culture.

On their trip, the students will eat Cuban food, learn about baseball in Cuba and take a tour of Havana. It will be the trip of a lifetime for them and a fully immersive experience into the local culture of Cuba itself. They will experience hands-on learning about conflict resolution and US-Cuba relations.

Marquette University Law School is the only private law school in the state, originally founded in the year 1892 and know originally as the Milwaukee Law Class. It is located within the Eckstein Hall on the beautiful Marquette University's campus in the centre of downtown Milwaukee. It is a Catholic institution and it is operated by the Jesuit order, with a mission for encouraging students to become agents of positive change within society.

As of 2011 the school has 743 students as well as 94 administrators and faculty members. Some of the famous alumni of the school include Russ Feingold (former US Senator from Wisconsin) and Joan F. Kessler (a Wisconsin Court of Appeals judge).
