Law school admissions committees have expressed the opinion that study abroad offers students an opportunity to broaden their undergraduate experience. The student who has had this experience gains in maturity, self-knowledge, and appreciation of the cultural differences among people. These students bring an enhanced wisdom to any law program that accepts them. If you are preparing for a career in law, you will gain important experience from living and studying internationally. As with all students, your overall goals for your undergraduate studies should shape how you envision your international experience. As you consider your plans, it is important to establish a set of priorities and to remain flexible.
