Thank You for your answer.
I know that law schools usually are post-graduate but it seems to me that I've heard about law schools taking foreign students even if they're not post-graduate.

Law schools as such don't exist overhere. In Germany and France (probably in the entire EU) you only have law studies. Then you pass the "Staatsexamen" (~ state examination) (for German law) and the "DEUG" (~ some kind of intermediate examination) (for French law).
After passing the state examination in Germany, you work for two years (in a chancellery or at the office of the district attorney, e.g.) and then you pass a second state examination. If you pass the second one, too, you are qualified to exercise the functions of a judge as all other jurisitc professions.

And this is why I think that US law schools actually take foreign students even if they're not post-graduate.

Thank You for the allusion to these two schools. I'll try my luck.

Hello everybody!

I'll pass my Franco-German Abitur (= diploma from German secondary school qualifying for university admission or matriculation) in 2013 in Germany.
We've got a special program at the University of Saarland (Germany) that allows you to study even if you're still at the high-school. So I'm studying Franco-German law and preparing my Abitur contemporaneously.
If I'm lucky I'll be 2L when I finish school.

I would like to spend a semester in the States for study after the Abitur and I think that I should start looking for a (fully funded) scholarhsip by now.
Can you help me? Do you know any foundation or trust that offers scholarships to european law students?

Thanking you in anticipation!
~ Silas
