William and Mary Law School

Study Abroad

The only thing better than learning the law is learning it abroad!

The modern practice of law is increasingly international in nature.  Our students may find it beneficial to devote part of their J.D. education to legal instruction in a foreign location.   The Law School supports study abroad opportunities where the instruction regularly is provided for international students and course offerings advance our educational objective of expanding student learning to encompass the study of foreign legal systems. 

If you have lived and studied abroad or if you have never been abroad before, we have suggestions for both satisfying credit requirements and doing so in a foreign country.  You may choose one of these options to taste the law of another country - in that country, to establish networking for future job opportunities, to increase your foreign language fluency (though most approved courses are taught in English), or to build your resume for the perfect job.
