The School of Law offers semester abroad legal study for credit through cooperative programs with universities in France, Denmark, Lithuania, Australia and Germany. Participating Texas Tech students select from the regular course offerings at the relevant foreign university and study with students and professors at the host institution. Students take law courses in English. This level of participation provides an unparalleled education in comparative and international law. The foreign law schools involved are:
France: Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3 located in Lyon, France;
Australia: La Trobe University School of Law in Melbourne (Bundoora), Australia;
Lithuania: Vytautas Magnus University located in Kaunas, Lithuania;
Denmark: University of Copenhagen located in Copenhagen, Denmark;
Germany: Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität in Münster, Germany.
Participation in these semester-abroad programs is limited, so competitive applications may be required depending upon interest in a particular program. Texas Tech students selected to participate in these programs are charged their regular Texas Tech tuition for the cost of the program. Students are responsible for paying all other costs related to attendance (e.g., travel, room/board, books, facility fees, etc.).
In order to timely complete the application requirements of the American Bar Association (ABA), Texas Tech, and the host institutions, students must begin the application process by scheduling to meet with Professor Jorge A. Ramírez, Associate Dean for International Programs, at least one year prior to the time they plan to study abroad.
There is still time to start your application to study in Europe or Australia next spring semester. Contact Professor Ramirez immediately.
