Study abroad opportunities

Exchange opportunities through the Schulich School of Law

Dalhousie University’s Schulich School of Law is committed to promoting student opportunities to study in other countries and in other civil law traditions. You’ll be eligible to do an exchange program in your third year of the program; exchanges are normally done over one term. While attending the exchange partner institution, you’ll pay tuition at Dalhousie.

The Schulich School of Law has civil law exchanges with two Quebec institutions (the Universities of Laval and Sherbrooke), as well as a number of international exchange arrangements. You can choose from among a number of institutions and locations, including

  • the University of Maine;
  • Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Australia;
  • Maastricht and Vrije in the Netherlands;
  • Lund University in Sweden;
  • the private Bucerius Law School in Hamburg, Germany;
  • and the National University of Singapore.

You might also participate in an exchange with the Universities of Houston or Arizona in the United States, or the Universidad Panamericana and Monterey Tech in Mexico, through the North American Consortium of Legal Education (NACLE). The Health Law Institute also has an arrangement that can allow you to study for a term at Loyola University in Chicago.

Qualified upper-year students may apply to study for a term at these institutions and, if accepted, the exchange term counts for academic credit at Dalhousie.
