International Study Opportunities for Law Students

In an increasingly interconnected world, experience and familiarity with international law and other nations' legal systems and cultures is increasingly indispensable for lawyers, legal scholars and law students alike.

Recognizing this powerful trend, UCLA School of Law offers various opportunities for its students, and for law students in other countries, to gain exposure to international law and the legal systems and cultures of other nations.

UCLA School of Law has partnered with thirteen other leading academic institutions in Europe, Asia, Israel, Australia and South America to establish the Foreign Legal Study and Exchange Program (FLSEP). Under exchange agreements with these partner schools, UCLA School of Law will host the most highly qualified students from its partner schools, while similarly talented and committed UCLA law students may sample the intellectual and cultural riches that partner schools offer.

The program is highly selective - each semester, each partner school may normally nominate only up to two students to attend UCLA School of Law for a semester, and UCLA School of Law may normally nominate only up to two students to attend each partner school for a similar academic term. Well-qualified candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
