International & Comparative Law Program

Our international and comparative law program offers an exciting range of opportunities to expand your horizons—through numerous courses; a concentration in international and comparative law; study abroad options of a year, a semester, or a few weeks; conferences and guest lectures; and international law externships in the U.S. and abroad.  We also serve as the student services home for international students at Vermont Law School, connecting individuals with resources across campus and answering questions about life in the United States.  

Curricular Opportunities

Our partnerships with leading universities in Canada, England, France, and Italy allow students to experience a semester abroad or earn a specialized degree from a foreign university. You will emerge with a solid foundation in international and comparative law, as well as a valuable global perspective.  Scholarships are available for study/travel coursework and for international human rights field work.  


For individuals who live outside of the United States, there are several options for both taking classes and completing degree programs through Vermont Law School.

If you are currently enrolled at an institution which has an established exchange partnership with VLS, you can complete coursework through the International and Comparative Law Program as an international exchange student. Please speak with the appropriate office at your home institution about the necessary application procedures.
