Legal Study Abroad Headquarters
For a student wishing to study for a semester or year abroad, there are
no formal programs open to all law students. Most programs are only open
to the student of the sponsor university. If you wish to study on a program
not available through your law school, you will probably have to create
you own program. This task need not be too formbidable. However, there are
ABA rules that need to be met, and cooperation must be obtained from both
your home and abroad institutions. The continuing steps are laid out below:
Get Program Infromation from the Law School in Which You Wish
Study: Search the world law school index from Hieros
Gamos for the law schools that you might be interested in attending. Contact
institutions to request a program brochure for foreign exchange or L.L.M.
Includes the entire continent of Africa and the Middle East
East Asia, Southeast Asia, and India
Includes all of Western Europe, Russia, the former members states of the former
Soviet Union, and the other Eastern European Countries
Apply to the foreign institution and fill out the ABA
forms: The American Bar Association has a form to be filled out and
turned in 45 days in advance of enrollment in the foreign institution. The
form takes cooperation from both the foreign and home law schools to complete;
so start early. Once these lasts steps are complete, you are done with
the application process! All that is left is travel and lodging. Good Luck.
