Study Abroad Business Law Programs
The Law School has ten unique semester study abroad exchange programs in nine different countries throughout Western Europe and Latin America. J.D. students are eligible to study abroad in their second or third year. Two of those exchange programs, one at Bucerius Law School in Hamburg, Germany, and the other at Bocconi University in Milan, Italy, are highly regarded business law programs.
