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 sixteen 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 hosts 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.
UCLA School of Law’s current partner schools include:
• Bucerius Law School, Hamburg, Germany
• The Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies, Geneva, Switzerland
• Haifa University Faculty of Law, Haifa, Israel
• Hebrew University of Jerusalem Faculty of Law, Jerusalem, Israel
• Institut d’Etudes Politiques d’Aix en Provence, France
• Keio Law School, Tokyo, Japan
• Leiden University Law School, Leiden, The Netherlands
• Melbourne Law School, Melbourne, Australia
• Panthéon-Assas (Paris II) University, Paris, France
• Peking University Law School, Beijing, China
• Tel Aviv University Buchmann Faculty of Law, Tel Aviv, Israel
• Tsinghua University School of Law, Beijing, China
• Universidad Torcuato di Tella Law School, Buenos Aires, Argentina
• Universitat Pompeu Fabra Law School, Barcelona, Spain
• University of Tromsø Faculty of Law (UiT The Arctic University of Norway), Tromsø, Norway
• University of Vienna Faculty of Law, Vienna, Austria
Foreign law students who are not enrolled at one of the above partner schools are not eligible to apply to study abroad at UCLA Law, as the law school does not presently accommodate “free movers” or other students outside of its existing mobility agreements. Foreign law students can learn more about the exchange program, eligibility criteria, application process, admissions procedures, and more online.
