Study Abroad

Asian Legal Studies Institute‚Äč
Students participating in this study abroad program focus on the legal principles and planning related to international transactions in the Asia-Pacific region. Hosted by Beijing Foreign Studies University, one of the most prestigious schools in China, the program is a one-of-a-kind immersion in China's legal system.

University College Dublin
The DePaul University/University College Dublin ("UCD") Cooperative Program was established in 1991. The program consists of an annual exchange of students and faculty from each law school. Each year, UCD sends seven third-year law students to DePaul College of Law for the entire academic year (August - May), and DePaul College of Law sends seven second-year law students to UCD for the spring semester. Students have the opportunity to take numerous Intellectual Property courses. Additionally, DePaul College of Law and UCD exchange faculty each year for approximately two weeks per academic year. The cooperative program received full American Bar Association approval in June 1993.

Additional Study Abroad Programs
Each year, DePaul law students participate in study abroad programs offered by American law schools other than DePaul that are approved by the American Bar Association. The best time to study abroad is after your first year if you are full-time or after your second year if you are part-time. Students in their final year are not allowed to study abroad because the delay inherent in transferring credits will postpone their graduations and disqualify them for sitting for the Bar.
