Study Abroad Offerings

In this faculty-led program, students study with faculty and peers from the United States and across the Caribbean, all while living in a stimulating West Indian university environment. The program takes place during the first summer session so that students can continue their studies at Washburn or intern at home during second session. Financial aid applies and scholarships are available. The program is open to law students from other universities, as well.

Japan is one of the United States' most important allies and trade partners. Its constitutional history is deeply linked to American constitutional design but also completely unique in many ways. The two countries also have long-standing fascination with each other's cultures. Live and study in a large and thriving but safe Asian city.

As early as 1968, Washburn recognized that the practice of law was becoming increasingly global and responded with a summer-abroad program. Washburn Law now expands students' understanding of different legal systems through its summer program at The University of the West Indies on Barbados and its semester-long program at Maastricht University in the Netherlands.
