Educational objectives for foreign study are:
- Encounter other cultures and legal theory and systems;
- Attend legal courses that are international and comparative in focus;
- Participate in legal events that familiarize them with the legal system of the host country;
- Gain an international and comparative perspective of the law; and,
- Experience daily living in a different culture.
