In today’s global society it’s never been more necessary to have an understanding of how legal systems operate beyond our state and national borders.

See the world. Change the world.

Global issues affect much of what we do in the legal profession. As businesses increase their international footprint, as foreign policies evolve, and as more people relocate from their home countries, attorneys increasingly need to be informed on international affairs. At OU Law, we believe that to be an effective legal professional, you must challenge yourself to gain a deeper understanding of the human condition. That’s why we provide several opportunities to experience other cultures, either right here on campus or around the world.


OU Law’s established Study Abroad programs take students to England and China each summer, where they live and learn with peers from other institutions. In addition to our partner programs, students may also develop their own study abroad experience based on their own career goals. Students have interned or studied in places such as Switzerland, Slovakia, Hungary, and Hong Kong.

Studying abroad not only enriches your life by exposing you to new cultures, but it also gives you a strong career advantage in today’s global society.
