Study Abroad — Law

WHY STUDY ABROAD? We highly encourage and support our Legal Studies majors to take a semester abroad. Pulled out of your comfort zone, you will come to appreciate the nuances of other cultures and how critical it is to be sensitive to them no matter where you are in the world. You'll also become a more globally engaged citizen based on your exposure to an international array of global legal issues, an important skill for a Legal Studies professional.

Champlain Abroad Dublin

Dublin is an active, energetic, capital city with a young population and a friendly town feel. Despite the relaxed atmosphere, Dublin is a hub for global corporations as well as small start-up companies. Founded in the 9th Century as a Viking settlement, Dublin is now the political, cultural and economic center for Ireland. Students in Dublin enroll in at least 15 credits to comply with Irish Immigration.

Explore the Global Marketplace

"Global Appreciation" has emerged as an essential competency employers seek. Champlain has taken a proactive approach to cultivating this competency by ensuring that international learning is embedded in the College's curriculum.

Additionally, Champlain offers opportunities for every student to engage in a study-abroad experience. To that end, we designed the curriculum of our majors to support a semester of international study. What does this mean to you? You can study in another country, even complete an internship, and still graduate on time.

Living and studying in another country will make you a more culturally aware citizen, and an internationally engaged and cross-culturally sensitive professional.

A World of Options:

  • Champlain College's Dublin Campus attracts students from diverse majors and is the ideal starting point for further exploration of Ireland, Europe and points beyond.

  • Montreal, home to another Champlain Campus, is ranked as one of the world's "hippest" cities by the New York Times. Our program is known for cutting-edge academics and internship placements in a city famous for its innovative economy.

  • Champlain has developed a Global Partners Program, offering study-abroad sites in Auckland, New Zealand; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Florence, Italy; Ifrane, Morocco and Shanghai, China.

  • Our third-party partner programs take Champlain students as far afield as Mumbai, India; Capetown, South Africa; Innsbruck, Austria; Wellington, New Zealand; London, England; Gold Coast, Australia and many more.
