Self-initiated Study Abroad

If students would like to study abroad at an institution where neither the Law School has an exchange relationship nor the student is able to apply through another ABA-accredited law school’s program, students may develop their own program. The self-initiated study abroad option essentially permits students to create their own study abroad experience at any foreign law school of their choosing. Students identify the school and the program at which they would like to study, apply directly to and become accepted at that institution, and pay tuition to that school.

Because this option is the most administratively difficult to arrange, students are encouraged to start exploring the self-initiated study abroad option at least a year in advance.
