      Foreign Programs

      Cumberland School of Law offers opportunities for U.S. law students to study abroad, and for non-U.S. students to study on the Samford campus. Participating U.S. students gain international perspective by studying and living in a legal system and culture different than their own. These programs also enhance the international perspective of students who remain in the U.S., by bringing students from other nations to the Samford campus.

      A study-abroad program in Cambridge, England gives J.D. students the opportunity for comparative study of U.S., British, and European Union law, in an historic and attractive setting at Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge.

      Cumberland’s Master of Comparative Law (M.C.L.) degree program is designed for graduate lawyers, judges, prosecutors, and legal educators from outside the U.S., who learn about the U.S. legal system and culture; participants spend two summers taking courses in residence at Cumberland (with the option to attend the Cambridge study-abroad program) and write a thesis.

      Under a cooperative arrangement between Cumberland and The Norwich Law School at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England, British law students have the opportunity to study in the U.S., and Cumberland graduates have the opportunity to study in the U.K. Participating Norwich LL.B students spend a year at Cumberland after their first year of legal studies at Norwich. Two Cumberland J.D. graduates each year are awarded full-tuition scholarships for studies toward an LL.M degree at Norwich.
