Study in London


Through its London Law Centre, the University of Notre Dame offers law students a unique opportunity to study law and engage culture in full-year, semester, and summer programs.

Evolving technology, economic realities, and political doctrines present increasingly urgent challenges to the rule of law. Notre Dame engages these challenges through these three programs, each designed to encourage an international understanding of law and culture. All courses and instruction conform to the standards of the Association of American Law Schools and the American Bar Association. As a student, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from both American and British professors and enroll in courses that integrate the law, history, and culture of London.

A Year or Semester in London

Housed in Notre Dame’s London Law Centre, located at the northwest corner of famed Trafalgar Square, the full-year and semester programs offer students a unique educational experience both in and outside of the classroom.

The London curriculum changes to meet the needs and interests of students. For example, students might be offered standard American law courses as Business Associations, Commercial Transactions, Evidence, and Jurisprudence. However, in most cases, a comparative law element from another foreign law system is added. This gives students a chance to examine American law through different cultural and legal viewpoints.

Additionally, the London location allows faculty to take their teaching out of the classroom and bring legal principles to life. Rather than just talk about the legal theory, students can actually visit locations, such as the British Museum, to view important historical items that influenced law.

Accommodations are available in Greater London, and the programs can accommodate 25 to 35 students each year. Tuition is the same as Notre Dame Law School's main campus.

Interested students can view a presentation on the program. Michael Addo is the director of University of Notre Dame London Global Gateway Law Program.
