Legal Study Abroad Headquarters
The Legal Study Abroad Headquarters is the most comprehensive
on-line collection of legal study abroad materials in existence. It contains
information, brochures, and contact information for all ABA-approved study
abroad programs and contact information for almost every law school in the
world. It is a one-stop guide for law students everywhere: (1) for
U. S. law students who wish to study abroad, access information on enrollment
in one of more than 100 ABA-approved formal study
abroad programs or, alternatively, the creation of an individual
(ad hoc) study abroad program for a semester, year, or L.L.M. study
at any law school in the world, or (2) for non-U. S. law students who
wish to study in North America, access information on enrollment in an American Law School as a foreign exchange or L.L.M.

A FEW SHORT STEPS TO THE WORLD
The site is laid out as a step-by-step guide to completing the research
application process for legal study abroad. The steps are laid out below:
Decide Whether Study Abroad is Right for You: American law students
who wish to study abroad should be aware of a number of restrictions that
the American Bar Association imposes. The most important restriction concerns
credit transfer. The ABA allows the transfer of only twelve academic credits
to count toward a J. D. degree at a U. S. law school. However, fourteen
credits may be transferred from a year-long, foreign L. L. M. program. Secondly,
students must have completed their first year of law school, either full-
or part-time, prior to studying abroad. Finally, only two students from
any one U. S. law school may study at any one foreign law school during
any given semester. If these restrictions are not too onerous, proceed to
Decide What Type of Program is Right for You: A law student has
three basic options for legal study abroad. Which one you choose depends
on who you are, where you want to go, how much money you have, and what
type of study program you wish to pursue. Choose one of these options to
go on to step three.
