As a KU Law student, you can complete part of your studies abroad. While you’re there, you’ll take challenging classes from distinguished faculty members alongside your fellow students, earning credits toward your degree and gaining an entirely new appreciation of the world. You’ll also have ample time to explore the city, take excursions, and try new things.
The law school offers two formal summer programs in Ireland and Istanbul, Turkey. Students can also choose to spend a semester studying at partner schools in Trento, Italy or Aberdeen, Scotland. Students may also pursue a semester of study at another foreign institution with appropriate approval. Read the guidelines under “Approval for Overseas Study” at the bottom of this page.

Approval for Overseas Study
The University of Kansas School of Law supports allowing students to attend foreign institutions to pursue their legal studies. In allowing students to pursue their legal studies at foreign institutions, the law school’s objective is to ensure that students have a well-rounded education, recognizing the importance of international and comparative law in the modern era.
Approval for international legal studies will be on an individual basis. Before approving international studies, the student proposing to study abroad must submit:
- Information related to the institution where the student will study
- The student's proposed plan of study
- An explanation of how the proposed plan of study will advance their legal education and overall career objectives
The student must also obtain a faculty advisor, who will work with the student in developing their course of study. Approval will be granted where the proposed course of study advances the educational objectives of the law school, as well as meeting the needs of the individual student.
