The School of Law's international study options include sites in London, Augsburg, and Seoul. These programs offer students an unparalleled opportunity to study the foundation of American law while living in exciting cities abroad.
Among our most unique offerings are dispute resolution study tours with the elite Straus Institute, a full semester externship in our nation's vibrant capital, and the lives-changing Global Justice Program.
In the interest of preserving their safety and security, students in Pepperdine Law Global Programs are not permitted to travel to countries for which the U.S. Department of State has issued Travel Warnings, even if the warning only provides details on a specific city or region within the destination country. The current list of Travel Warnings may be viewed at https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/alertswarnings.html. Students are also not permitted to travel to locations which Pepperdine University has issued its own travel warnings, or against the direct instruction of Pepperdine staff. Locations to which travel is prohibited may include an entire nation, a specific region within a nation, a city, or a specific area within a city. Such warnings will be given to students on a timely basis and will be reviewed frequently. A student may petition for a specific, one-time exception to a travel ban through their program coordinator, contingent upon consideration and approval by the Executive Vice President and the Provost. Students who fail to receive special approval and travel to locations with a Travel Warning from the U.S. Department of State will receive sanctions, which will likely include dismissal from Global Programs. Students will be responsible for paying all cancelled travel costs. Additionally, it is the student's responsibility to update their emergency contact person(s) on Wavenet.
