Global study opportunities
Discover the exciting places you can study overseas as a UWA law student.
The UWA Law School is involved in a number of international partnerships which give students the opportunity to study at the overseas host institutions and obtain a unique study and life experience.
Sturm College of Law, University of Denver
In the 2 + 2-year double degree Juris Doctor program with Sturm College of Law, University of Denver, Colorado, UWA and UD students have the opportunity to do two years in their own institution and then two years in the host institution. Students will obtain a Juris Doctor from each institution and be qualified to apply for practice in both WA and the USA.
University of Oxford
With the Oxford ‘add on’, UWA Juris Doctors are able to apply to do the highly sought-after University of Oxford Bachelor of Civil Law (BCL) after completing all UWA core units in two and a half years. After three and a half years’ full time study, successful applicants will have both a UWA Juris Doctor and an Oxford BCL.
Short term exchange opportunities
UWA Juris Doctor students can apply to study one semester of their three-year degree at an approved institution overseas). Students will receive credit for four option units, the equivalent of 24 points. This exchange is usually undertaken in the second semester of the second year of studies.
The University of Toronto QEII exchange
UWA and University of Toronto students have the opportunity to complete a research project with a supervisor from the host institution, and obtain credit towards their home institution degree, usually to the effect of one option unit (6 points).
Mishpatim program, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
UWA JD students can undertake the 3 week program in January and obtain one option unit (6 points) credit towards their Juris Doctor degree.
Law students can undertake law units offered through AIM Overseas. This is an undergraduate program but it is possible for Juris Doctor students to receive one option unit credit (6 points) if the unit is approved by the Director of International Partnerships and Exchange as substantially equivalent in form and substance to a Juris Doctor level unit.
