Applications to spend the Fall 2024 semester studying abroad are due to International Legal Studies by 5pm on Thursday, February 15.

The Semester Abroad Program offers Harvard Law School J.D. students the opportunity to study law and live in a foreign country while receiving a semester of ungraded credit towards their degree. HLS students may apply for designated spots for a semester’s study at one of the 10 foreign law schools with which HLS has an exchange agreement, or create an “independent” semester at any foreign law school that meets the study abroad program’s requirements.

Detailed information about eligibility, locations, program requirements, and the application process is available on our Semester Abroad web pages:
