Admissions Question: March 17th
Q: I am interested in studying abroad. What opportunities are available at Lewis & Clark Law School?
A: Lewis & Clark Law School has partnerships with the summer study abroad program at the University of San Diego and with the China Program at the University of Missouri Kansas City. L&C students may participate in summer study abroad through either of these programs or they can participate in summer programs offered at other ABA accredited law schools. The ABA allows transfer of up to 12 study abroad credits towards a J.D. degree at a U.S. law school. Many Lewis & Clark students, particularly first year students, participate in study abroad programs each year.
It is advised to discuss your plans of going abroad with the Career Services counselors to make sure that this would fit well with your goals. In some cases, they may recommend that you consider working abroad instead or volunteering while studying, so that you come back with some solid work experience (preferably legal) that you can use to enhance your resume.
