Despite the heat, studying in Prato has never been so cool!

June ended with the last classes of the 2019 Prato Law program.

For three months,184 law students from six different countries (Australia, Israel, Canada, France, United States and India) studied together in Prato, enhancing their knowledge of international humanitarian law, European human rights, international refugee law, among other subjects.
Students also had the opportunity to attend guest lectures held by high profile professionals in the field, including Jeff Modisett, CEO of Nextlaw Global Referral Network LLC in Los Angeles and Professor Mel Marquis, Professor at EUI and Co-Founder and Co-Director of the EU Competition Law and Policy Workshop.  Despite the end of the 19th edition of this multicultural and immersive program, the activities at Monash Prato Centre will be in full swing over coming weeks. In July, the Prato Centre welcomes 134 new students in six units from across the university. Monash Art, Design and Architecture students are in Prato to study Industrial Revolution; Faculty of IT students will examine the nature and development of technology in science, engineering, the arts and architecture; Faculty of Science students will explore how science contributes to the development of society through the eyes of astronomy; and two groups from the Monash Business School will work on understanding issues surrounding global business and the social responsibility of industry. The last group before the August summer break comes from the Faculty of Arts, in Prato to study human rights in the sphere of criminal justice and criminology. 

The Monash Prato Centre is pleased to welcome to Prato these new cohorts of students, and wish those who studied here previously all the best for the future.
