China study abroad program
Our students are given the rare opportunity to study abroad for an entire semester. Some law schools boast a summer abroad, but our program is much more extensive. Classes are taught in English and our students will study with a small group of only 10-20 other students from various countries, all of which will enhance your semester abroad experience. This is a unique opportunity, and you will find it only at our law school.

Your questions answered
Do I need to speak Chinese?

How do I get accepted?
Our exchange program is open to any 2L or 3L student who has a GPA of 3.0 or higher.

When should I apply?
You should complete an application to study in China as early as possible since spaces are filled on a first come, first served basis. If you want to spend the fall semester in China, you should complete an application no later than March 31st prior to the fall semester. If you want a spring semester exchange, you should complete an application no later than November 30th prior to the spring semester.

Where will I live?
The Chinese law schools generally offer dormitory space or apartments near campus. Most US students prefer their own apartments off-campus.
How much does it cost?
You will only pay our normal tuition. You must pay for the visa, flights, local transportation, meals, and housing in China. The lower cost of local transportation, meals, and housing should more than offset the cost of the visa and flights.

Will there be other US students studying with me?
It depends on the law school you attend. There will generally be 10-20 students from many other countries, most of whom will be attending classes in English with you.

Will a semester in China help me get a job?
A semester in China can only help your chances of getting a job. Your resume will stand out. It will give evidence of your interest in international law and your experience in dealing with foreign cultures and practices.
