GENERAL STUDY ABROAD INFORMATION:
Immersion in the language, culture, legal system and legal education system of another country through study abroad can substantially enhance your understanding of the law and the global environment in which it is created and applied.
While studying at Pitt Law, J.D. students may obtain up to 29 credits from an accredited foreign law faculty that will count towards the completion of their J.D. degree. This can be in the form of graduate level courses that are part of a degree program, such as an LL.M., an ABA-approved program sponsored by an American law school, or individual courses at a foreign law school. Students who opt to to combine work on a foreign LL.M. with their Pitt JD can graduate from Pitt Law in three years with both degrees.
Note regarding The Order of the Coif: In keeping with the requirements of The Order of the Coif, students are eligible for Coif membership only if they complete at least 75% of their law studies in graded courses. Any credits transferred without grades will not count toward this Order of the Coif requirement. See also the law school's Academic Standards web page to read about the applicability of study abroad grades in determination of graduation honors.
