While Memphis Law does not currently host any study abroad programs, we encourage
students to explore programs at other law schools. Study abroad is a great way to
gain unique educational experiences and meet students from all over the world.
How to Apply for Study Abroad
Please review Academic Regulations 16.5 and learn about transfer credit for law school work completed at another law school.
Credit will only transfer from an ABA-accredited law school. You first must request
the permission of David S. Romantz, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, to enroll in the program. You must make a “C” or better in each course for the credit
to transfer. The credit hours transfer, but the actual grade does not.
To receive permission from Dean Romantz, please include the following information
about the program:
- The law school hosting the study abroad program
- Detailed course descriptions that include the number of credit hours awarded
- Information on the how the course(s) is examined (paper, final examination, etc.)
- Information on how the course is graded (pass/fail, letter grades, etc.)
Law schools from all over the country send Memphis Law information about various study
abroad programs. This list is not by any means exhaustive. Posters can be found in Law 268.
