Study Abroad Programs

The legal job market is rapidly internationalizing, with a growing need for attorneys skilled in areas such as cross-border mergers and acquisitions, international commercial arbitration and dispute resolution, anti-dumping and competition law, project finance, and global compliance. Most attorneys will encounter international issues even in their domestic practices, including immigration, international sales, and foreign property issues.

Students who study abroad gain firsthand experience firsthand how law is practiced overseas. Study abroad also teaches students new forms of legal reasoning, increases their intercultural legal competence, and, where applicable,strengthens their professional foreign language ability.

Temple Law is the only US law school with our own study abroad on our campuses in Rome and Tokyo, taught by main campus Temple Law faculty and well-recognized local adjuncts who have taught in these programs for years. In addition to the Summer Program in Rome and the Semester Abroad Program in Tokyo, Temple offers semester-long study abroad with our partner universities, including:
