About the University of Florence

The Faculty of Law at the University of Florence is one of Italy’s most prestigious law faculties. The University of Florence is part of Italy’s national public university system. The Faculty of Law currently has 2500 students in its 4-year undergraduate law program. In addition to its large selection of law courses taught in Italian, it now offers a portfolio of law courses taught in English, making it possible for UM Law students to complete their semester with these courses.

About Florence

Florence means “the city of flowers”. It remains one of Europe’s finest repositories of art and culture making it a rich historical resource for students who choose to study there.

Tuition and Housing

UM Law students will pay their regular tuition to UM, and pay no tuition to the University of Florence. Students will need to find housing off-campus.
