A handful of lucky Brigham Young University law students are going to be the first to embark on overseas studies that will parallel internships in legal and financial institutions in Europe.
On Wednesday, BYU announced two new programs focused on preparing the next generation of leaders in the legal practice.
BYU will offer Law Seminar programs in Geneva and London beginning in winter 2022. The semester-long programs enable well-qualified students to earn credits through a combination of externships and coursework — while gaining valuable international experience to enhance their career preparation. The London and Geneva programs will be fashioned after BYU Law’s Washington Law Seminar, a successful applied learning experience launched in fall semester 2016, according to the university.
