Study Trip to the Czech Republic for U.S. Professionals

October 15-26, 2014


Looking for a unique travel experience that combines traditional sightseeing, lectures that offer the opportunity to earn continuing legal education (CLE) credits, cultural activities, shopping, and free time? Come explore the beauty of the Czech Republic as we learn about the law, politics, and culture of this central European nation.

This year our tour begins and ends in Prague, the City of a Hundred Spires. There will be ample time to visit the Castle, stroll through Old Town, take a river cruise or enjoy one of a variety of cultural activities this vibrant city offers. From Prague the group will journey to Pilsen to learn about the politics, architecture, music, world-famous breweries and manufacturing companies headquartered in West Bohemia. The group will travel to Brno, the judicial capital of the Czech Republic, where we will tour the Constitutional Court and have an opportunity to learn firsthand about a modern day redevelopment project planned for the Brno train station. U.S. attorneys and judges traveling with us will present a one-day series of lectures to law faculty and students at Masaryk University. Attorneys that participate in A Day of U.S. Law are eligible to receive CLE credits. In addition an excursion to Slavkov, the site of the Battle of Austerlitz, where in 1805 Napoleon defeated the Russian and Austrian armies is planned. Travelers will have time to visit museums, other points of interest, and shop while in Brno then return to Prague for the final weekend.

This trip offers the security, ease and value of group travel with ample opportunities for independent exploration and shopping. You are bound to relish the camaraderie of traveling with a group of interesting individuals and make lasting friendships. We hope you decide to join us this year for a memorable travel experience.
