Cornell Law School can send up to two students to the University of Chile each academic year.  Students who wished to study there during their "First Semester" would not be able to complete their work until July, however.

Language of Instruction



The Universidad de Chile School of Law is the country's oldest and most prestigious. Founded in 1843, the School has educated the great majority of Chile's Presidents. Since 1938 the School has been located in the beautiful Bellavista area of downtown Santiago, at the geographical and cultural heart of the city, across the river and overlooking the magnificent Andes mountains. It is a place where people from the four cardinal points of our country converge, a traditional place of social encounter.
