International exchange

Completing one, two or three terms of your law degree program at an overseas institution is both a culturally rewarding and intellectually enriching experience. Students are eligible to go on Exchange in their fourth or fifth year for Undergraduate or during the second or third year of a Juris Doctor program.

The meetings focus on a different region (for example USA, Europe, UK, Asia, Latin America) and covers relevant general information. For details of when and where the information meetings are offered, please visit the UNSW International Exchange website.

A specific information session is held every term for Law students. Details will be published on the Law students' notice board and on this web page.
