Individually-Designed International “Terms Away”

This year a maximum of two students will be selected to enroll at a non-partner institution abroad. In order to be considered, students must satisfy the following requirements:

(a) the proposed program must be in country where Cornell Law School does not have a current exchange partner;

(b) the student must provide a detailed program proposal with their study abroad application. The proposal should include:

  • confirmation that the proposed host institution accepts visiting students and is of comparable quality to Cornell Law School;

  • a detailed statement of the student's educational and professional objectives for studying at the other institution, and how they will be met by that institution;

  • confirmation that a significant portion of the credits to be earned at the host institution are in courses not offered by Cornell, and relate to the clearly defined educational or professional objectives above.

Students should not apply to the proposed law school in advance of being selected by Cornell for an individually designed program slot.

Students who wish to be considered for an individually designed program slot should apply online through the regular study abroad application webpage, select the individually designed slot as one of their choices, and upload their additional application materials on that page.
