The University of Kansas School of Law supports allowing students to attend foreign institutions to pursue their legal studies. In allowing students to pursue their legal studies at foreign institutions, the law school’s objective is to ensure that students have a well-rounded education, recognizing the importance of international and comparative law in the modern era. Approval for international legal studies will be on an individual basis. Before approving international studies, the student proposing to study abroad must submit information related to the institution where he or she will study, his or her proposed plan of study, and an explanation of how the proposed plan of study will advance his or her legal education and overall career objectives. The student must also obtain a faculty advisor, who will work with the student in developing his or her course of study. Approval will be granted where the proposed course of study advances the educational objectives of the law school, as well as meeting the needs of the individual student.
