International Law Opportunities at UC Law

Global opportunities at a premier U.S. law school

Whether you want to study law in the United States or develop your expertise in international and comparative law, Cincinnati Law offers some distinctive opportunities to global-minded students. We've compiled a comprehensive list of our opportunities viewable here in our International Dean's Report.

Internationally Trained Lawyers

Our UC Law LLM program in the U.S. Legal System prepares its graduates to better represent U.S. and non-U.S. clients and sharpens their negotiation, litigation, and transactional skills. Comparative law students are integrated into our JD classes and can tailor their studies to their professional goals. Non-U.S. law school graduates may also choose to pursue one of our UC Law graduate certificate programs for international students.

JD Students

Law today is increasingly global and our UC Law JD students develop the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in an international marketplace. Classroom instruction in international law and business transactions is complemented by global opportunities to study abroad or participate in summer internships in countries ranging from Botswana to China or Ireland and beyond.

The UC law school's Urban Morgan Institute for Human Rights has been a leader in the education and training of human rights lawyers for over three decades and is recognized throughout the world for its many contributions in the field. Similarly, the first international innocence network conference on the global human rights issue of wrongful conviction was sponsored by UC Law's Ohio Innocence Project and held in Cincinnati.

International JD Students

Our small law school community provides many opportunities for international students in our UC Law JD program to work closely with faculty and other law students. Whether you intend to seek employment in the United States or return to your country after graduation, our JD program will help you achieve your professional goals.
