Continuation of the successful cooperation between the Faculty of Law of the Masaryk University in Brno and the John Marshall Law School in Chicago

In the middle of May 2018, the high level delegation of the Faculty of Law of the Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic, headed by Dean Ms. Markéta Selucká, visited the John Marshall Law School in Chicago with which it has already been cooperating since 1993. The deans of both schools signed a new Memorandum of Understanding on mutual cooperation.

The Memorandum of Understanding envisages exchanges of students and law teachers, organization of conferences, arrangements of Czech legal study tours for attorneys and judges from the USA, mutual publication activity and other types of cooperation. Students of the Faculty of Law of the Masaryk University can also make an internship at the Consulate General of the Czech Republic in Chicago during their studies at the John Marshall Law School.

A detailed information about the cooperation of both law schools is to be found at:



Professor Michael P. Seng from the John Marshall Law School, coordinator of the Czech law program, has a great credit for the successful cooperation between both law schools and with other institutions and lawyers in the Czech Republic.

The John Marshall Law School has cooperated with other law schools and universities in Prague, Olomouc and Bratislava as well as with the Czech Bar Association and the Slovak Bar Association and other institutions in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. In April 2018, Deputy Foreign Minister and the Representative of the Czech Republic to the Court of Justice of the European Union Martin Smolek lectured at the John Marshall Law School and at the University of Chicago on the European judicial structure.
