Study Abroad at Fordham Law
See the World, Nurture Your Career
At Fordham Law, our 16 semester programs, 5 year-long programs, and 3 summer programs complement our incredibly strong international law classes offered in New York.* Every year, law students can opt to see the world while studying law and gaining invaluable work experience in one of Fordham Law’s three summer study abroad programs—in Ireland, Ghana, and Korea—as well as in a dozen more programs during the academic year.

“I interned with two judges of the High Court in Dublin,” says Roger Hewer-Candee ’20, a graduate who participated in Fordham Law’s Belfast/Dublin Summer Program, which provides a deep dive into international law and dispute resolution. Indeed, Fordham is the only U.S. law program to ever produce interns in the highest courts of both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

“It is a very special experience to go behind the scenes and be able to talk to a judge in real time about how they are responding to written and oral submissions and formulating their opinion,” says Hewer-Candee, who went on to intern in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Maine after his experience in Ireland.

Students also meet with high-level government officials and civil rights leaders and get to know the real Northern Ireland, speaking with former paramilitaries on the Republican and Loyalist sides as well as dispute mediators to achieve a better understanding of how the peace process unfolded.

“I think about all the people I never thought I’d meet, and all the places I never thought I’d go, and I feel so lucky that I participated in the program.”
For Paul Guiguis ’21, being part of the Fordham-SKKU Summer Institute in International Law in Seoul, Korea, changed the way he saw the world. “It was especially fascinating to have discussions with the Korean students to understand their perspectives. We learned about the delicate balance between the country’s executive and judicial branches, discussing both historical cases and current events. On a visit to the Supreme Court, two Justices sat down for a Q&A session with us. Then, of course, there’s Seoul, one of the most delicious cities in the world. I think about all the people I never thought I’d meet, and all the places I never thought I’d go, and I feel so lucky that I participated in the program.”
*All study abroad programs have been suspended for the fall 2020 semester.
