Exchange Programs

Our international and national exchange programs offer exciting opportunities for students to expand their studies beyond the classroom at Maine Law. Our agreements with universities in Canada, England, France, China, and Ireland, allow students to experience a semester abroad. Students who study through these exchange programs will gain a valuable international perspective and develop a foundation in international law.

We offer international exchanges with the following institutions:

Maine Law also offers an exchange program with Howard University School of Law.  A semester at Howard Law School provides you the opportunity to pursue specialized courses, such as further study in intellectual property law, while also making connections with our strong alumni network in the Washington D.C. area. 


The international and national exchange programs are open to students in good academic standing who have finished the first year of law school.  Students who are studying through an established exchange program earn Maine Law credit and pay tuition and fees to Maine Law.  Financial aid will be adjusted for any increased expenses associated with the exchanges.  For information about semester abroad programs, please see the Assistant Dean for Student Affairs.  Additionally, students who are interested in studying abroad through an ABA accredited program or in studying at other ABA accredited institutions must consult with the Assistant Dean.
