Information SessionS:

Study Abroad

The Semester Abroad program is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in a foreign legal culture and to receive a semester of ungraded credit towards the Harvard J.D. degree for study at a law school overseas. HLS students can apply to study at one of our exchange partner schools, or for an independent semester abroad at another accredited law school.

The HLS-University of Cambridge Joint Degree program brings HLS students to the UK to spend a year at one of the world’s oldest and most distinguished universities. Students who successfully complete program requirements earn a Harvard J.D. and a Cambridge LL.M. in a total of three-and-a-half years.

Come learn more from International Legal Studies staff and HLS students who have studied abroad.
