The College of Law is affiliated with a summer foreign study program at Downing College, Cambridge University in the United Kingdom. This exciting opportunity allows students to obtain new and interesting perspectives on the law as well as enjoy new experiences in one of the most important and beautiful academic institutions in the world. Students who have completed the first year of law school and are currently in good standing are eligible for admission to the Cambridge Study Abroad Program. Students may take up to 6 credit hours or three 2 credit hour classes. The Cambridge Study Abroad Program is a fully ABA-accredited program jointly sponsored by Downing College of Cambridge University and the University of Mississippi School of Law, in affiliation with the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville School of Law, The University of Tennessee College of Law and the University of Nebraska College of Law.
Students may pursue other study abroad programs at ABA-approved law schools as visiting students.
All students who study, intern, do service learning, or research abroad—or receive UNL funds to travel abroad—must go through UNL’s Education Abroad Office. This office will work to facilitate these kinds of experiences, to maintain an accurate database of who’s where/when, to keep records by college on the numbers of students who go abroad under a UNL umbrella, to prepare students for their experiences, register them with the appropriate embassy, and assure some preparation for health and safety.
