Studied at: the Paris Institute, University of Paris’ Centre Mahler
“I’ve always wanted to visit Paris, so when the opportunity arose to study there for five weeks [in the summer], I jumped at it. My professors in Paris were from a variety of law schools including Columbia, the Sorbonne, the University of Chicago, and the University of San Diego.”
Participation in a study abroad program helps students to gain a clearer understanding of the increasingly global nature of the practice of law.
Through a generous gift from Milton Stewart, JD'71, students may apply to be designated as Stewart Fellows and spend part of the summer in Brazil, China, India, or Korea. The fellowships give students the opportunity to enhance their understanding of how law is practiced across various cultures. The Fellowships are arranged through Indiana Law's Center on the Global Legal Profession, and further information can be found on the Center's website.
Microsoft has created The Eric T. Werner Global Cyber Security Policy Advancement Exchange Program in partnership with Indiana University and Xi'an Jiao Tong University to help improve mutual understanding of cyber policy consideration between the U.S. and China, and to set an example of effective international academic and industry collaborations to address global information security challenge.

The Maurer School of Law also offers several other opportunities for studying abroad, from a summer in Dublin to a semester in Hong Kong. In addition to the summer programs listed here, we also offer semester-long exchange programs.
Through the summer program, Indiana Law students have the opportunity to study law overseas and earn four to six credits as part of a collaborative relationship with the USD Institute on International and Comparative Law, a summer-study program sponsored by the University of San Diego School of Law. Programs in England, France, Italy, and Spain introduce students to foreign and international legal institutions during an intensive four- to five-week academic session. Each session offers courses that take advantage of the city’s unique resources, and all courses are taught in English.
The institute’s summer programs include:
The London Institute specializes in the legal aspects of international business with courses in taxation, corporations, banking, labor law, and antitrust.
The Paris Institute examines international and comparative law, focusing on cultural differences that influence international dealings. Courses are offered in public international law, European Union law, and international business transactions and related areas.
Laws that deal with artistic and intellectual productions are the focus of the Florence Institute. Courses in international art law and international intellectual property are generally offered, as well as courses in immigration law, international negotiations, international litigation, international entertainment law, and international contracts.
The Barcelona Institute specializes in European law, offering courses in European Union law, international contracts, international environmental law, and international corporations.
