Study Abroad

With careful planning, students can spend a semester immersed in the study of law in a foreign culture. Most of these programs require a high level of foreign language proficiency, but some programs or courses in English are available in a growing number of countries.

Study Abroad Programs

Several available programs are organized by law school consortia, but you can organize your own overseas experience through UMKC’s partner schools in Asia, Europe and South America. UMKC students in recent years have studied in China, England and Italy. If you would like to pursue semester-long study abroad, you should meet with the associate dean for international programs to discuss your objectives, options and to begin planning.
