Law in an International Context

Study abroad

Study Abroad During Law School

Studying abroad during law school offers the opportunity to immerse yourself in a new culture, learn about another country's legal system, improve your cross-cultural skills and enhance your global perspective.

St. Thomas Law students have studied a wide range of subjects such as comparative systems or topics in international law in many areas of the world, including Chile, Germany, France, England, India, Netherlands, Greece, China, Argentina, Ireland, Mexico, South Africa and Italy.

The School of Law also has a partnership with Pázmány Péter Catholic University in Budapest that offers our students the opportunity to study abroad in Hungary and complete an international legal internship.

Selecting a Program

The School of Law will accept credits from an overseas summer law school program if it has been approved by the ABA and the student achieves a grade of "C" or better in each course for which they seek credit. When you decide to apply, you will be assisted by the Associate Dean of Admissions, the Office of Study Abroad, the office of Graduate Financial Aid and the Office of Academic Achievement.
