Semester Study Abroad Programs
Columbia Law School offers approximately 20 different single semester abroad opportunities, located in more than a dozen different countries across Europe, Latin America, and Asia. (The exact number of programs on offer may change from year to year.)
Each single semester abroad program has its own distinctive characteristics and associated advantages. The majority of these programs are conducted in the English language, but many offer instruction in the local language. Most are open to both 2L and 3L students, although preference is given to the latter. Some programs have a curriculum focused on the law of a specific country or region, while others concentrate in a particular academic specialization within the law. Others may include programmatic elements such as certificates of study or associated internships.
