Good idea or bad idea to go into one of these?Consider these schools:International Law at Temple Law in TokyoInternational Law at Leiden in the Netherlands.Business Law at Bocconi in Milano ItalyEu Law at Copenhagen in DenmarkSchool of Oriental and African Studies Law Faculty in LondonLaw at New South Wales in Sydney AustraliaAny thoughts on the value to one's future of spending a fall or spring in one of these places as a 2L or 3L?Any links to ratings and reviews of their programs, or blogs or other writings by past students who have gone to them?
Other benefits worthwhile?The 'experience' is probably a good reason for a younger student. Myself, having lived in Asia for five years in my 20s and having become bilingual while there, I'm looking at this for the possible practical value.It's a good year away, so I haven't started really looking into the academics of the various options, and in fact this is the launch pad of my "research". At this point, I just want to see if there is anyone out there who has done this before, or anyone who can speak on its long term benefits.Is it really worth it as a networking opportunity?Does it have major added value on 'the resume'?Is the legal education solid and different enough to be worth skipping out from a semester of your home school?What unique problems occur in doing this?Thoughts from anyone who has done one of these programs?
While LoverOfWomen has posted like 84 irrelevant girly pictures on every conceivable law school thread, he misses his one opportunity to justifiably achieve his goal of lightening the mood without being completely off-topic. This was his chance to suggest "Studying a broad [insert pic]." You forgot to file your motion ubercounselor. I'm afraid it's too late now. Better luck in your law career...(If anyone is wondering, I am obliged to include that because Lover thinks every comment on here is a direct result of their poor skills as an attorney)
