PHILADELPHIA -- The University of Pennsylvania Law School and The Faculty of Law of the University of Hong Kong have established a Master of Laws degree student exchange program.
The JD/LLM exchange program will allow up to three students from each of the universities to spend their third year of law school at the partner institution and complete a Master of Laws program.
“This program offers students at Penn Law and HKU a unique opportunity to pursue a truly international legal education,” said Professor Eric Feldman, Deputy Dean for International Affairs at Penn Law.
“The new program with Penn Law is an acknowledgement of the globalization of the practice of law,” said Professor Johannes Chan, Dean of Law at HKU. “Under this program, students will benefit from both institutions, which distinguish themselves as some of the oldest and most academically vibrant law schools in their regions.”
Students can begin submitting study abroad applications during the Fall 2010 semester for the 2011-2012 academic year.
