Study Abroad

As a KU Law student, you also have the opportunity to spend a spring semester or part of your summer across the ocean, in another vibrant setting that brims with culture. 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. Pack your bags and join us abroad for the adventure of a lifetime.
