Study Abroad

The practice of law has become increasingly globalized with attorney and client often located in different countries.  As a law school located within minutes of an international border, the University at Buffalo School of Law keenly recognizes the value of studying law in another country.

Our study abroad options provide students with the opportunity to

  • pursue areas of legal study which will complement their Buffalo coursework;
  • to improve their understanding of a foreign legal system and cultural practices;
  • and to enhance their ability to work across cultures and borders in their future legal careers.

In addition, students will gain valuable skills navigating their way around a new school, legal system and country, while making linkages and friendships that will endure long past law school.

Our Bilateral Exchange Program

The School of Law has bilateral exchange agreements with two international partner schools: University of Glasgow School of Law and ESADE Law School.  When you visit either one of these institutions you are considered an international exchange student, which is governed by the formal exchange agreement with that partner school.


An exchange agreement between the University at Buffalo and the University of Glasgow has opened doors between both institutions.


ESADE Law School provides an extensive international and comparative law curriculum that meets the growing demand for globalization in education.
