Study Abroad

Study Abroad

Both J.D. and LL.M. students may take advantage of study abroad opportunities offered at Albany Law. The study abroad programs aim to create partnerships with international law schools for the exchange of faculty and students that enrich both the academic and cultural communities of each institution.

Exploring Chinese Trade with the Government Law Center
In 2011 and 2012, 30 Albany Law School students traveled through China to learn about commercial and business law. As a supplement to formal classroom instruction, the students are visiting Chinese courts, government offices, U.S.-based law firms and corporate offices in Beijing and Shanghai as well as meeting with Albany Law School alumni practicing in China. Read dispatches from students and faculty in China. Contact Professor Cords
