Independent Study Abroad (as part of a non-ABA program)

New York Law School recognizes that study at a foreign law school, which is not approved by the ABA, can add significantly to a student’s understanding of international and comparative law. The goal of such study shall include enhancing a student’s knowledge of different legal systems, preparing a student for practice in a global environment, and strengthening a student’s overall legal education. In order to receive credit for an independent study abroad as part of a non-ABA program, a student must meet and obtain prior permission from the Office of Academic Affairs.
