Student Exchange at Centre for Transnational Legal Studies, London

Join a global cohort of law students for a semester of study at the prestigious Center for Transnational Legal Studies (CTLS) in London.  

The Center for Transnational Legal Studies in London is a one-of-its-kind global partnership in legal education, encompassing students and faculty from 16 world-class law schools. 

CTLS offers students and faculty an unparalleled opportunity to participate in a semester-long intensive program in international, comparative and transnational law, unlike any conventional “study abroad” or exchange program. The Center’s small size and multicultural orientation provide the opportunity for students to learn in a uniquely active, participatory way. 

The CTLS vision: Leaders of the legal profession in this 21st century need to understand law within the context of different legal systems and different cultures. Lawyers will increasingly be called upon to advise businesses, individuals, non-governmental entities, and governments in matters that involve parties, laws, and judicial or arbitral bodies in two or more jurisdictions. To prepare for careers that transcend the borders of their home countries, students need to develop transnational perspectives. Each academic year (Northern Hemisphere Fall /Spring), the University of Auckland Law School seeks to nominate one high-achieving law student from the LLB programme for participation in the CTLS semester programme.

Eligibility Requirements 

Admission is competitive and enrolment is limited to one (1) University of Auckland student each year, with nominations from the Auckland Law School. To be considered for admission, students must have completed foundational legal studies and thus be prepared for and capable of advanced legal studies. There is a presumptive requirement that all participants hold a 6.0 GPA or higher.
