International Programs

From our study abroad programs in Barbados and Maastricht, to our program in the Republic of Georgia, Washburn Law provides students and faculty opportunities to learn about the law globally.

Study Abroad

As early as 1968, Washburn recognized that the practice of law was becoming increasingly global and responded with a summer-abroad program. Washburn Law now expands students' understanding of different legal systems through its summer program at The University of the West Indies on Barbados and its semester-long program at Maastricht University in the Netherlands.

Summer Abroad – The University of the West Indies

The Washburn Law Summer Study Abroad Program in Barbados provides students an opportunity to understand their legal systems more fully through comparative study of the Caribbean system while living in a stimulating West Indian university environment.

Independent Study Abroad – Maastricht University Student Exchange

The Independent Study Abroad Program allows Washburn Law students who have completed one year of course work to study international law and comparative law with the faculty of law at Maastricht University in the Netherlands.
