Foreign Study Program Overview and Goals
Stanford Law School Requirements
Students who participate in the Foreign Study Program are not exempted from Stanford Law School’s graduation requirements. They must complete, at Stanford, the ethics, writing, and professional skills requirements of the J.D. degree. It is each student’s responsibility to determine how a quarter of foreign study will affect his or her ability to fulfill Stanford Law School’s graduation requirements.
In addition, to be awarded credit by Stanford Law School for a course of study at a foreign school, students who participate in the Foreign Study program must, upon their return to Stanford, provide the Foreign Law Programs Committee with: (a) a transcript or certificate documenting courses they have successfully completed; (b) copies of any written work they completed during the course of their study; and (c) a copy of the written Final Report described in Section 10 that they submit to their faculty advisor.
