International Opportunities

Queen’s Law is a leader in preparing law students for today’s global environment. Queen’s University has the unique advantage of owning a British castle. We offer our students the opportunity to participate in the International Law Programs at the Bader International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle and a growing number of international exchange opportunities on four continents. We also help our students pursue public-interest summer internships around the world.

  • International Law Programs at the BISC. The Faculty's unique International Law Programs, held each May and June at Queen's Bader International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle in the U.K., are intensive and integrated academic programs in International Business Law and Public International Law.
  • International Exchanges. Queen's Law students have the opportunity to spend a term on exchange at one of our partner universities around the world.  Mark your calendar!  The International Exchange Information Session for students interested in going out on exchange for a term during the 2017-18 academic year will be held on Monday, November 14th from 1:00-2:30 pm in MAC 001.  See you there!  [Please note:  the 2017-18 Application Information/Forms are available in the QLaw Portal [JD Students--International Exchanges]
  • Incoming Exchange StudentsEach year the students studying here on exchange enrich the Faculty and bring unique perspectives and insights to the students at Queen's. Students from other countries who spend a term at Queen's Law are welcomed warmly.​
  • International Letter of Permission. Law students may apply to the Academic Standing and Policies Committee by for a Letter of Permission for International Study to study for one term at a law school with which Queen's Law does not have an official exchange agreement. 
  • Internships. Law students are increasingly interested in gaining experience and serving the public by working with not-for-profit and public-interest agencies in the summers after their first and second years.  
  • International Moots. Queen's Law students have the opportunity to participate in international law moots, including the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot, the Willem C. Vis International Arbitration Moot, the ELSA Moot Court on WTO Law, the Niagara Moot and the First Year International Law Moot.
