Partner Schools

Where Will You Go?

Case Western Reserve University School of Law has agreements for semester study abroad programs with 17 schools around the world. We also have agreements for concurrent degree programs with three European schools.

Students who study abroad at one of our foreign partner schools pay normal tuition to our law school. Students are responsible for visa, airfare, local transportation, meals and housing costs while studying abroad.

If you are interested in studying at one of our foreign partner schools, please contact Sarah Polly. She can provide you with more specific information regarding the course of study, housing and application deadlines. In addition, she can put you in touch with students who have already studied at these schools.

The American Bar Association’s Criteria for Accepting Credit for Student Study at a Foreign Institution requires disclosure of the following information about our foreign partner schools.

Cancellation and refund policies for our students studying abroad are the same as for regular study at our law school; please visit Student Financial Services for more information about cancellation and refund policies.
