Stanford Program in International and Comparative Law
The Foreign Legal Study Program
Today, virtually all Stanford Law School graduates will encounter foreign legal systems and will work with lawyers and clients from other countries in their practices and post-graduate work. That is why learning about foreign legal systems is an increasingly important aspect of legal education. An excellent way for students to gain familiarity with foreign legal systems is through study at a foreign law school. Stanford Law School has established a Foreign Legal Study Program that allows our students to pursue study for Stanford Law School credit at a number of leading foreign law schools with which Stanford has established foreign study arrangements. In exceptional cases, students can also petition to study at a foreign law school of their own choosing.
