International Exchange Program

Spend a term studying abroad

Our JD program offers valuable opportunities to for Schulich Law students to study in other countries and in other legal traditions. Students are eligible to do an exchange in their third year of the program; exchanges are normally completed over one term. While attending the exchange partner institution, tuition will be paid at Dalhousie.

We also offer opportunities for students from around the world to come and spend a term studying at the Schulich School of Law.

Please be aware that some of the partner exchange schools’ terms end later than the term ends at Dalhousie and that various consequences could flow from having to defer graduation, including issues with bar admission courses, articles, clerkships, graduate school, and other employment issues.

Students wishing to study away on a letter of permission for a year or a term at another Canadian law school must speak to the Associate Dean, Academic for more details. Note: Students who spend a term at another Canadian law school are not permitted to participate in an exchange program during the same academic year.
