Outside of his common law curriculum, Breeze has studied international law, civil law, comparative law and European Union institutional law, not only in New Orleans, but also at affiliated civil law institutions in Hungary, Austria, Czech Republic and Costa Rica. In December 2009, he participated in Loyola’s seminar/tour of the principal institutions of the European Union including onsite analysis of: the European Commission and the European Council in Brussels, Belgium; the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg; and the European Parliament and the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France.

Outside of his studies, Breeze served as a legal researcher and investigative journalist for Stephen Hesse, Senior Environmental Columnist for The Japan Times. After graduation, he relocated to Belize to continue his internship with The Japan Times and coauthored a series of articles addressing extensive human rights violations and environmental degradation. These exposés specifically focused on the Maya peoples of southern Belize, detailing the struggle they face in having their communal land tenure rights respected and protected.
