Students who participate in the Cambridge summer study-abroad program gain a broader perspective on European and other legal systems, through specific international and comparative courses, as well as living in the UK for a month and having opportunities to travel in other countries. The students additionally gain perspective on the U.S. system by observing different approaches to law in countries outside the U.S.

Student Testimonial

"Spending the summer in Cambridge was one of the best decisions I made during law school. The combination of interesting classes, endless travel options, and a great group of people added up to an amazing experience. Learning about English and European law is fascinating and made me feel more informed about what is going on in the world. More importantly, I can now tell people I studied at Cambridge and drop Shakespeare references into my legal arguments."
