International Law Opportunities through UB School of Law

Published May 16, 2019

The University at Buffalo provides a truly international academic experience by  welcoming students from over 100 countries. The impact on education and research benefits our student population  by adding to the international opportunities available to students both inside and outside of the classroom.

The School of Law offers a wealth of internationally-related opportunities, ranging from study abroad opportunities, to student organizations that create a uniquely rewarding environment for both domestic and international students. Here are some international law opportunities available to students at UB Law.

Studying Abroad in Law School

Study abroad opportunities teach students to navigate in diverse countries and cultures while building friendships that will last long past law school.

Law students have expanded their legal knowledge by:

  • Immersing themselves in the legal culture of Thailand
  • Learning tax law and international law in Paris and Brussels
  • Studying international economic law in Wellington, New Zealand

The law school also has exchange agreements with schools outside the United States in cities including Glasgow, Barcelona and Sydney.

International Legal Competitions

Students have the opportunity to explore international law issues by becoming involved in any of several international moot court competitions.

Our students participate regularly in:

Cross-Border Legal Experience

While in law school, students have opportunities to secure internships with overseas law firms, including through the New York State Bar Association’s global internship program.

Recent interns have worked at law offices in Stockholm, Vienna, Mexico City, Guatemala City, and Prague. In addition, the Buffalo Human Rights Center annually provides funding to numerous Summer Human Rights Fellows, who have conducted field work all over the world. Many students have held summer positions at United Nations agencies, and other posts abroad.
