Study Abroad & Exchange Programs
A Global Approach to Legal Education
Through programs offered on campus and abroad, Florida law students gain international experience and exposure and a distinguishing edge in today’s competitive job market. Students benefit from decades of international experience and involvement by faculty.
In addition, each year Foreign Enrichment Courses bring to campus leading professors, judges, attorneys and government officials from around the world to teach courses dealing with timely international and comparative law issues.
The College of Law jointly sponsors ABA-approved summer law programs with University of Montpellier in France, University of Cape Town in South Africa, and University of Costa Rica in San Jose, Costa Rica.
