Where Can Study Abroad Take You? Information Session on Semester Abroad and the HLS-University of Cambridge Joint J.D.-LL.M. Degree

The Semester Abroad program is a wonderful opportunity to immerse yourself in a foreign legal culture and to receive a semester of ungraded credit towards the Harvard J.D. degree for study at a law school overseas. 2L and 3L students can apply to study at one of 11 exchange partner schools, or for an independent semester abroad at another accredited law school. 

The HLS-University of Cambridge Joint Degree program is an incredible opportunity to spend a year at one of the world's oldest and most distinguished universities. This program may be of particular benefit to students interested in public or private international law, British law or European Union law, or in pursuing an academic career. Students who successfully complete program requirements earn a Harvard J.D. degree and a Cambridge LL.M. in a total of three-and-a-half years.

Come learn more about these programs from HLS students who have studied abroad. 

Lunch will be served.
