London Law Centre
The London Law Centre allows students to expand their knowledge of international law and culture. There are several different study options in London for law students – a semester program, a full-year program, a summer program, and an LL.M. program. The programs all conform to the Association of American Law Schools and the American Bar Association.
Classes take place in Fischer Hall and are taught by British professors, as well as visiting professors from the University of Notre Dame.
The full-year and semester programs offer places to around 25-35 Notre Dame students each year. The classes include U.S. and international law, comparative law, human rights, and courtroom skills. Students can undertake placements with British lawyers or U.S. law firms in the area.
The Summer Law Program is now a 3-week intensive course focusing on Intellectual Property Law, enabling students to study in London and still attend summer internships and on-campus interviews. It offers opportunities for hands-on legal field work.
The University of Notre Dame LL.M. in International and Comparative Law in London enables students from the European Union to study in England while obtaining a degree from a prestigious U.S. law school. It provides advanced training in common law and comparative law studies to graduates particularly of civil law countries.
