Study abroad opportunities add global perspective—and adventure—to the Vermont Law School experience.
The International and Comparative Law Program offers semester programs for JD students at McGill University (Montreal, Canada), Renmin University of China School of Law (Beijing, China), University of Trento Faculty of Law (Trento, Italy), and Université de Cergy-Pontoise Faculty of Law (Paris suburbs, France). Semester programs immerse students in international legal systems and practice as well as culture and history. Learn more about our study abroad semester program and each participating school.
International Externships give students the opportunity to earn academic credit while working in supervised externships in intergovernmental organizations, nongovernmental organizations, and international firms and associations. Learn more.
Vermont Law School offers intensive seminars in comparative law in partnership with the University of Trento in Italy (European Union Law) and the University of Seville in Spain (Comparative Constitutional Law). Learn more about the seminars.
Our dual-degree programs equip Vermont Law School students with educational credentials from a prestigious European university–the University of Cergy-Pontoise or the University of Cambridge. These programs afford students more time in another country to directly connect with students, faculty, and prospective employers and gain international experience while they earn a JD from Vermont Law and a second degree from our partner university.
Summers for the VLS student can include learning opportunities at ABA-accredited law schools around the globe.
