Given Tulane Law School's strong tradition of commitment to international and comparative study, it is not surprising to find an abundance of opportunities to study international and comparative law in the classroom. The richness of our curriculum enables us to offer Certificate Programs in such areas as International & Comparative Law, European Legal Studies and Civil Law. 

In addition to the courses and faculty at Tulane, our students may also choose to spend periods ranging from weeks to months studying law in other parts of the world through our Summer Study Abroad programs and our International Exchange Programs, both described below.

Summer Study Abroad

Tulane Law School's summer abroad programs include sessions ranging from two weeks to one month in length and in 2017 will be taught in:

  • Berlin, Germany
  • Rhodes, Greece
  • Siena, Italy
  • Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  • Cambridge, UK
  • Paris, France

These programs together offer more than 50 courses and underscore Tulane's commitment to international and comparative law. Over the past 20 years, Tulane's international summer programs have brought Tulane students and those from more than 150 other law schools together with professors from Tulane and dozens of other law schools from the United States and abroad. Faculty in our summer programs also include prominent state and federal court judges. U.S. Supreme Court members who have taken part include the late Chief Justice William Rehnquist and Associates Justices Harry Blackmun and Antonin Scalia, along with current Justices Stephen Breyer and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. In 2016, Tulane hosted Justice Samuel Alito at both the Paris and Berlin summer programs.

In most cases, Tulane students spend one semester at the international exchange partner university, receiving 12 to 14 credits toward the Tulane JD for successful completion of the semester's work. Appropriate language fluency is required for the exchange programs in Argentina, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. The exchange arrangements in place permit one or two Tulane law students to attend each of the exchange-partner universities each year. Tulane students pay tuition to Tulane for the semester spent at the partner university. For more detailed information on going abroad for a semester, please contact Professor Herbert Larson in Suite 155.

For students who are interested in going abroad, an information session is held each semester. Please also see our Exchange Programs Pamphlet for detailed information on our various exchange partners and more in-depth descriptions of what the programs entail. Educational objectives for studying abroad include development of firsthand experience with foreign procedures, laws, practice, education and culture.

Each year, law students from the exchange-partner universities spend one or two semesters at Tulane Law School. If you attend one of our partner universities and are interested in spending a semester at Tulane, please visit the International Exchange Program website

The international student-exchange programs are supervised by Herbert Larson, Executive Director of International Studies.
