Abstract

U.S. law schools currently run more than 200 study abroad programs annually, but scant law review literature exists on the subject. This is surprising, because study abroad programs are a central mainstay of U.S. law schools’ global programming efforts. This essay therefore addresses the design and administration of law school study abroad programs, and does so through the comparative lens of feng shui principles. The result is a useful taxonomy of factors that must be considered, and balanced, in order for law school study abroad programs to be fully effective — both as stand-alone programs and as platforms for additional global programming.

Keywords: Study Abroad, Globalization, Transnationalization, Legal Education
