Train with London’s Leading Legal Practitioners
Syracuse University College of Law proudly offers one of the nation’s longest-running Law in London programs, where students learn from London’s leading legal practitioners. During an eight-week summer experience, students gain international exposure to clients, partner with professionals for personalized mentoring, and enjoy boundless cultural opportunities - in one of the world’s most dynamic cities.
Long before the U.K. took center stage in Europe’s destiny with its vote to Brexit, Syracuse University’s College of Law recognized the U.K.’s integral political role in world affairs. For 40 years now, the College of Law has offered our students a comprehensive introduction to London’s rich legal world, immersing ourselves in U.K. law, and living it through a panoply of internships in this unique summer program.
