International Semester Exchange:

Applications due August 1st for 2018
USF has established semester-long exchange programs for students who wish to immerse themselves into the study of another country's laws and legal system. Opportunities are available for USF students to study at the University of Luxembourg or at Charles University in Prague.

"This program was one of the best academic decisions of my law school career. I've distinguished my resume and I came away with a totally different perspective on law. I made incredible friends and had the pleasure of living in one of the most beautiful and underrated cities in the world." - Student who recently attended Charles University
