2-Year J.D. for Foreign-Trained Lawyers

2-Year J.D. for Foreign-Trained Lawyers overview

For overseas students who already hold a foreign law degree, the 2-Year J.D. for Foreign-Trained Lawyers is distinctly marketable to employers. An attorney with full credentials in the United States and one or more additional jurisdictions is in high demand in the global economy.

While on campus, students will benefit from classes taught by distinguished faculty members; enjoy life in Lawrence, one of the best college towns in America; and meet other highly motivated colleagues from around the country and the world.

From KU Law’s perspective, students with foreign law degrees bring valuable diversity and professionalism to the classroom, and expand the school’s excellent global professional network of students and graduates.
