Summer Study Abroad Law School Programs

Study Abroad
Share:

One of the most rewarding ways to spend your summer as a law student is a study abroad program. Below you’ll find our comprehensive directory of study abroad options for law students. You can read more about some real students’ experiences in study abroad programs in the Student Lawyer magazine article: “How I Spent My Summer Abroad.”

About these listings

Student Lawyer obtained the information for this directory from American Bar Association–approved law schools, all of which were offered free listings for their ABA-approved 2021 summer study abroad programs.

Publication of this information does not imply an endorsement or approval of any program by Student Lawyer, the ABA, or the Law Student Division. Airfare and other transportation to and from program sites aren’t included unless indicated. All programs are taught in English unless indicated. Housing costs are per person. All figures and dates may be estimated and are subject to change.

Although Student Lawyer has taken reasonable steps to ensure the accuracy of each listing, the magazine is not responsible for any errors. Questions about program information should be directed to the schools. While meant to be comprehensive, this directory isn’t a complete list of all study abroad programs. Further information on these and other summer abroad programs can be found at the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar.

NOTE: Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, not all programs may be available. Please check with each school to confirm that the program is still being offered.
