Professors Alberto Coll
and Cary Martin Shelby
accompanied 34 law students on a nine-day study abroad trip to Cuba in March. The program offered students an opportunity to learn about the Cuban legal and economic framework regulating foreign investment, trade and international business transactions. During the program, students also met with a supreme court justice and department chairs and deans at the University of Havana, and visited the Cuban Bar Association, a major Havana law firm and the Capitol building.
The Chicago Daily Law Bulletin recently published a story on the program. "We always hear so much about Cuba in the media and everywhere, so this seemed like a good opportunity to see it for ourselves and form our own opinions of it from the ground," DePaul third-year law student Jessica Watkins told the publication.
