International Opportunities

Global Opportunities at a Premier U.S. Law School

Whether you want to study law in the United States or develop your expertise in international law, Cincinnati Law offers some distinctive opportunities to international students. 

Internationally Trained Lawyers

Our Cincinnati Law LLM program in the U.S. Legal System prepares its graduates to better represent U.S. and non-U.S. clients and sharpens their negotiation, litigation, and transactional skills. LLM students are integrated into our JD classes and can tailor their studies to their professional goals. Non-U.S. law school graduates may also choose to pursue one of our UC Law graduate certificate programs for international students.

JD Students

Law today is increasingly global and our Cincinnati Law JD students develop the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in an international marketplace. Classroom instruction in international law and business transactions is complemented by global opportunities to travel abroad or participate in summer internships in countries ranging from Botswana to China or Ireland and beyond.

Cincinnati Law's Urban Morgan Institute for Human Rights has been a leader in the education and training of human rights lawyers for over three decades and is recognized throughout the world for its many contributions in the field. Similarly, the first international innocence network conference on the global human rights issue of wrongful conviction was sponsored by Cincinnati Law's Ohio Innocence Project and held in Cincinnati.

International JD Students

Our small law school community provides many opportunities for international students in our UC Law JD program to work closely with faculty and other law students. Whether you intend to seek employment in the United States or return to your country after graduation, our JD program will help you achieve your professional goals.
