Law School Exchange Programs

Information for Current UW Law Students


Participating in a UW Law School Exchange Program

The Law School participates in eleven exchange programs with foreign universities. In an exchange program, UW students pay the same tuition and fees to UW that they would pay for a semester at UW but attend foreign law schools or programs. In exchange the foreign schools send their students to the UW Law School. Some of the foreign programs are taught in English while others require proficiency in another language. Currently, the UW Law School has exchange programs with the following institutions:
