International OpportunitiesGrowing numbers of University of Richmond School of Law students spend the summer or a semester abroad with the help of resources available through the University's Office of International Education.
Study Abroad and International Internship Programs
The law school also hosts its own study abroad program-the Richmond Summer Law Program at Cambridge. Through the program, students have an opportunity to study for five weeks at Cambridge University's Emmanuel College. After the completion of the Cambridge program, students may participate in international or domestic internships for the remainder of the summer.
Grants and Scholarships
Law students may qualify for C. Weinstein Grants and other scholarships for international research and internships. In recent years, law school students have worked with practitioners in Israel and researched international law in Guatemala with the help of Weinstein grants.
International Law Society
Interested students may wish to join the International Law Society, a chapter of the International Law Students Association. ILSA sponsors the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition-the largest moot court competition in the world that hosts participants from more than 90 nations.
The Career Development Office is available to meet individually with students who wish to intern or work abroad. Please e-mail us to schedule an appointment.
