In recognizing the importance of educating globally-minded legal practitioners, Suffolk University Law School offers a wide array of international experiences to our students. Semester study abroad programs allow our students to immerse themselves in a country where they can further develop transnational perspectives, intercultural competence, and language and communication skills that will allow them to better serve in their local communities, across the nation and around the world.

The exchange programs are part of a plan to offer students a diverse portfolio of international educational opportunities, including options for summer study abroad, international experiential education, and a wide range of course offerings in international and comparative law.
