Our Foreign Exchange Mission
The practice of law is not confined to national borders. Attorneys need the ability to recognize
and identify legal issues raised when activities concern actors in more than one nation, or when
more than one legal system is potentially applicable. To complement our rich International and
Comparative law curriculum, Temple students have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the realities of life, study, and the law in different cultures to help them develop the cultural
competence increasingly needed to be a competent lawyer, both domestically and internationally.
In addition to the Summer Program in Rome and the Semester Abroad Program in Tokyo,
Temple offers Foreign Exchange Programs with partner universities in China, Columbia,
Germany, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Puerto Rico, Spain, Switzerland, and The Netherlands.
Since Fall 2013, 5 JD students studied at Tsinghua University (China), 2 JD students studied at Tel Aviv University (Israel), 3 JD students studied at Lucerne University (Switzerland), 7 JD students studied at Utrecht University (Netherlands), 2 JD students studied at InterAmerican University (Puerto Rico), 3 JD students studied at Cork College (Ireland), and 1 JD student studied at Universidad del Rosario (Colombia).
Country Travel Safety
The U.S. Department of State Travel website provides information on crime and security, health and medical conditions and the location of the U.S. embassy and any consular offices through Country-Specific Information sheets on every country in the world. We encourage all students and their families to review this information for any countries they may be traveling to at travel.state.gov.
Accessibility of Country, City and Facilities to Students with Disabilities
Students needing accommodations should contact the Graduate and International Law Office. In the countries of our exchange partners, there are limitations on accommodations for persons with physical disabilities. However, reasonable efforts will be made to address special needs.
For more information about our exchange programs, contact the Office of Graduate and International programs.
