International Exchange Programs

The International Exchange Programs Office’s mission is:

Taking part in an international exchange program is a path to diversifying the law school experience and strengthening one’s ability to stand out from the rest. The existing programs at UConn Law offer students a chance to increase their intercultural knowledge and enhance their legal education through intercultural experiences, comparative law studies and enhanced communication skills.

Our program with Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, Spain is designed to give students an opportunity to study at a foreign law school offering a diverse array of international legal courses in English, Spanish and Catalonian.

Since 1995, students have studied Civil Law and Jurisprudence at the Free University of Berlin, which is one of the largest Law Departments in Germany and has offerings in German and English.

Students at the University College Dublin in Dublin Ireland can take advantage of varied course offerings in Constitutional Law, International Human Rights Law, European Law and Criminal Justice Law. 

With a student population in Mannheim of approximately 12,000 students, the University of Mannheim offers UConn Law students the opportunity to study Comparative Law with classmates from all over the world in an unmatched setting – the largest baroque castle in Germany built in the 18th century.

At the University of Nottingham in England, students will have access to one of the leading centers in the world for legal research as well as courses concentrating in Human Rights Law and Criminal Law.

PUCPR is a university that reflects the history of the people who make the city of Curitiba and the state of Paraná: a unique mix of a predominantly European background enriched with large doses of local indigenous, African heritage and sprinkles of cultures from all parts of the world.

The University of Antwerp in Belgium draws students from around Europe and the world to its master of laws program. Course work can be completed in English, so there is no foreign language requirement.

Students interested in a global view of international trade and economic law would benefit greatly in attending University of International Business and Economics in Beijing, China!
