Second and third year J.D. students may apply to study abroad through one of our faculty-approved exchange programs. Hastings has foreign exchange/study abroad programs in Argentina, Australia, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Israel, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Spain and the United Kingdom. In addition, we offer an exchange program with the Vermont Law School (South Royalton, Vermont) which specializes in environmental law. Participating students may transfer up to 12 credits from any of these programs (except Vermont which allows for the transfer of up to 16 transfer credits), pending receipt of an official transcript from the exchange school verifying that all necessary coursework was completed, evaluated and passed.
Important to Note:
Under special circumstances, a second or third year J.D. student may submit a proposal for an independent study abroad program. For independent study abroad, a student must: (1) establish a compelling justification for pursuing study at the proposed school, as determined by the Academic Dean; and 2) arrange an independent study program at a foreign law school under terms and conditions approved by the Academic Dean and the Associate Dean of Global Programs. A student who arranges an approved independent study program at a foreign law school may transfer a maximum of 12 semester units for which a passing grade was earned at the other school. A student may not arrange an independent study program at a foreign law school where Hastings has an existing faculty-approved exchange program or study-abroad opportunity.
