For the 2014-2015 academic year, four international exchange programs are available:
Bucerius Law School - Hamburg, Germany
Washington and Lee was a founding member of an international consortium of schools that have an exchange program with the Bucerius Law School, Germany's first private, elite law school. Each fall, Bucerius sends its entire third-year class to its partner institutions around the world; at the same time, W&L students in the program take classes in Hamburg, in English, with other law students from Bucerius' international exchange partners. Courses focus on international business and trade law. The program takes place in Hamburg, one of Europe's most cosmopolitan cities; students also have the chance to travel to other European political and cultural centers.

University of Western Ontario - London, Ontario, Canada
The program is designed for the time period from January through April, during which time UWO has both a January term and a Spring term. During those terms, UWO offers numerous international and comparative law courses. In the January and Spring terms, UWO usually offers courses in European Union Law, Comparative Corporate Governance, Law and Armed Conflict, International Business Transactions, International Commercial Litigation, International Protection of International Property, Comparative Constitutional Law as well as trial advocacy programs and courses relating to Canadian law. Under certain circumstances, it may also be possible for W&L students to participate in the UWO Fall term, rather than the January and Spring terms.
UWO is located in London, Ontario, a city of approximately 335,000 people. As well as offering many cultural institutions in its own right, London is located approximately midway between Detroit and Toronto. Fact Sheet for Western Ontario
