Study Abroad Student Exchange
The Semester Exchange programs
give students the opportunity to learn another country’s laws in greater
detail and the chance to learn about different
cultures and teaching methods.
The School of Law has established semester abroad study opportunities at the China University of Politics and Law School in Beijing, City University of Hong Kong, the University of Luxembourg, and Charles University in Prague to a limited number of students.
For Spring 2015, USF is offering opportunities at University of Luxembourg, Charles University, and China University of Politics and Law School.
All classes are taught in English at the master's degree level or above. No foreign language is required.
The Luxembourg program offers students the opportunity to study in a city that is home to the headquarters of a host of European institutions, including the European Court of Justice and the European Investment Bank. Students may take a variety of courses offered by the University of Luxembourg’s Faculty of Law, Economics, and Finance.
The Law Faculty of
Charles University was formed in 1348 as one of four faculties of the newly
established Charles University. Presently,
with more than 4500 students, the Faculty of Law is the largest accredited law
faculty in the Czech Republic. Many Law
Faculty alumni hold prominent positions within the justice system, in central
and local administration, within the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in public
service and also in private legal practice and private businesses.
Established in 1952, China University of Politics and Law School (CUPL), is known as the leading law school in China. CUPL has played, and continues to play, a key part in the formation of China’s legal system: from the drafting of the 1954 Constitution of the People’s republic of China, to the promulgation of the Anti-Secession Law and the enactment and implementation of almost every major law of the Republic.
Students must have completed one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study at USF School of Law. 2nd year students must have earned a cumulative GPA above 2.50 in the spring semester of their first year. 3rd year students must be in good academic standing.
