Study abroad programs offer an extraordinary opportunity to enrich your law school experience. Immersing yourself in the study of law in a foreign jurisdiction is an excellent way to learn about other legal systems and to gain international experience and perspectives.
Each year Osgoode sends students to universities across five continents, including universities in India, China, Denmark, France, Ireland, Germany, Singapore and Japan, to name a few. Osgoode also accepts incoming exchange students each year.
