International Programs

The School of Law is proud to offer various international programs to UT's JD students

J.D./LL.M. Joint Degree Programs

Students can earn their J.D. in conjunction with a foreign Law degree at an international law school in a total of three and a half to four years. Students will spend their 3L year abroad and will be eligible to receive a degree from the foreign institution upon successfully completing the foreign degree requirements. Students will submit the same credits to the ISP office for credit conversion toward their University of Texas School of Law J.D. degree.

Semester Abroad Programs

Students can travel all over the world to learn about foreign legal systems, gain specialized expertise in areas of law while attending prestigious law schools. UT Law students may attend English instruction or after providing language proficiency may study in a foreign language. Students will spend the fall semester of their 3L year abroad. Students will receive credit toward their J.D. upon successfully completing courses abroad and submitting foreign credit to the ISP office for credit conversion toward their University of Texas School of Law J.D. degree.

English Spanish (proficiency for language programs are 2nd year college level) Portuguese (proficiency for language programs are 2nd year college level)

AD HOC Programs

Offer a compelling reason to study at a foreign law school not offered on our exchange program and UT law students be granted a course of study at any law school in the world. However, with a student-initiated program, students themselves must complete most of the required research and paperwork. In recent years, UT law students have studied at a wide range of foreign law schools, including schools in Mexico City, Moscow, Sao Paulo, Rome, Hong Kong and Beijing.

Transfer students awarded two residency semesters at entrance are not eligible to participate in these international exchange programs.

Students may apply for financial aid for each of these programs. If you have questions about any of our programs e-mail us at ISP@mail.law.utexas.edu.
