If you are attending Columbia Law School but want to get away from New York City for a while, you may consider joining one of the school’s 14 semester-long study abroad programs, which are conducted in 11 countries around the world. Students can choose from English-language programs like those at the Institute for Law and Finance in Frankfurt or the University of Amsterdam, or they can apply for one of the limited number of places in programs that are taught in foreign languages, such as Humboldt University (German) or the Université de Paris – Panthéon-Assas (French). If one of the locations you desire is not offered as part of a school-sponsored program, you can create your own independent program of study at a foreign school for up to 13 credits toward your JD. In the past, Columbia Law students have created programs at Roma Tre University in Italy, the University of Cape Town in South Africa and the University of New South Wales in Australia.
