Welcome to London

Established in 1981, Pepperdine Caruso School of Law's London Program offers second- and third-year students from Caruso and all other ABA-approved law schools the opportunity to study, work in externships, participate in moot activities, and travel during the fall semester. Students learn with British and American professors and expert practitioners in international, foreign, and comparative law, with emphasis on human rights, international commerce, and alternative dispute resolution. Students have the opportunity to work for academic credit in global firms, governmental practice, entertainment companies, or nongovernmental organizations. Students can also gain exceptional experience in moot competitions with British law students and lawyers. The London Program advances students' careers in one of the world's most important and diverse cities.

Pepperdine Caruso School of Law's unique London Program is a rigorous and exciting study-abroad program open to visiting law students in the second or third years of law school.

Located in South Kensington, close to Knightsbridge, Hyde Park, Imperial College, Kensington Palace, and the Victoria and Albert Museum, the London Program is a vibrant and rigorous academic, cultural, and professional experience. Full-time faculty from Pepperdine's Malibu Campus serve as the Director and visiting faculty member each semester. British professors, solicitors, and barristers, all experts in their fields, teach a diverse array of courses in British, European, and international law. Students embark on study tours in London and Europe to learn about and observe legal, governmental, and diplomatic institutions. The schedule also permits significant free-travel for students to explore Great Britain and Europe.

What Students Say

"I highly rate this program as I provided me with an environment to challenge my understanding of international law. In addition it allowed me to widen my network and gain from my externship things that cannot be taught in class."

"The London Program gets a 10/10 from me. Not too many law schools offer something like this, and it was a true once in a lifetime experience."

"The London Summer Program is the secret treasure of the Pepperdine Caruso Law School experience. It was great to learn about London's political and legal culture while advancing my class work. I also really enjoyed traveling on the weekends. It was a great way to spend the summer following my first year."

"I really liked the way the program was tailored to accommodate our needs from on-campus facilities to the Legal London day. It made this program fun, educational and professionally enriching. I can go back to the U.S. with great memories as well as a great international-professional-educational-legal experience which will enhance my credibility when I get into the real world."

"An outstanding experience. My professors were absolutely wonderful. I will be recommending that the international coordinator at my law school contact Pepperdine in the hope that more of our students are made aware of this program."

"As a non-Pepperdine student, I would highly recommend the London program to students who have the time and money to take advantage of this opportunity. The school's location is in the heart of London and the faculty and staff are extremely helpful with whatever issues/inquiries arise. If you will be attending this program as the only student from your school, don't feel that you'll be excluded from 'the group.' I NEVER felt this way."
