International Study Opportunities

Regent offers many avenues for international law education. Along with the Center for Global Justice, Human Rights and the Rule of Law and an active International Law Society, our law school study-abroad program hosts a number of exciting opportunities for international law and politics training.

For students interested in studying law in an international context, Regent Law offers opportunities in Pohang, South Korea; Madrid and Barcelona, Spain.


Students taking advantage of these international educational opportunities may study international law or law relating to the host country. Each offers a unique opportunity to travel while learning and spend an entire semester experiencing a new culture and legal system.

Educational objectives of foreign study:

  • To enrich the student’s perspective on the law by seeing law in the context of a foreign governmental-judicial system;
  • To see and appreciate the socio-legal environment of the destination country;
  • To study specific topic areas of law with an international/comparative focus.
