In 2015, the Law School and the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, signed an agreement to allow students at each institution to study for one semester at their partner institution. Founded in 1796, the University of Strathclyde is the third largest university in Scotland with Scottish, British, and international students (16%) from over 100 countries.

Study Information

The Center for International Law will select up to two students each semester (fall and spring) to study at the University of Strathclyde. Degree candidates selected for the exchange will be enrolled in the University’s LLB law program as non-degree students. UIC John Marshall students must take 15 semester hours at Strathclyde, which are taken for pass/fail credit and count towards elective credits on the Law School transcript. John Marshall applicants must have completed 29 hours and have a 3.0 GPA in order to apply for the program. We recommend that students consider this exchange program for their 2L, second semester or their 3L, first semester.
