International & Comparative Law Program

Our international and comparative law program offers an exciting range of opportunities to expand your horizons—through numerous courses; a certificate in international and comparative law; study abroad options of a year, a semester, or a few weeks; conferences and guest lectures; and international law externships in the U.S. and abroad.

Curricular Opportunities

Our partnerships with leading universities in Canada, China, England, France, and Italy allow students to experience a semester abroad or earn a specialized degree from a foreign university. You will emerge with a solid foundation in international and comparative law, as well as a valuable global perspective.


For individuals who live outside of the United States, there are several options for both taking classes and completing degree programs through Vermont Law School.

If you are not currently enrolled in a degree program anywhere and are willing to relocate to the United States, you can apply for admission to many of Vermont Law School's campus-based degree programs. Please note additional application requirements for international students.

If you are currently enrolled at an institution which has an established exchange partnership with VLS, you can complete coursework through the International and Comparative Law Program as an international exchange student. Please speak with the appropriate folks at your host institution about getting involved.

If you would like to take classes through Vermont Law School, but are not willing or able to relocate to the United States, you can earn many of our degrees through our online degree programs.
