Law and culture intertwined
Italian and American students partner in comparative employment law course
Dillon Taylor, L’16, transferred to the University of Richmond School of Law last year for one key reason: to participate in Professor Ann Hodges’ courses. “She’s really well known in the labor law and employment law arena,” said Taylor. Hodges’ new class on comparative employment law, offered in the Spring 2015 semester, was a natural fit for him, as well as for 12 other students at Richmond Law. But this course has a unique twist: It is jointly taught by Hodges and Maurizio Del Conte, associate professor in the department of law at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy. “We have a joint class, essentially, in two different places, two different countries, two different continents,” explained Hodges.
