Marquette University Law School currently participates in an exchange program with the University of Copenhagen. In an exchange program, Marquette students pay the same tuition and fees to Marquette that they would pay for a regular semester at Marquette but are enrolled and attend classes at a law school abroad. In exchange, the law schools abroad send their students to attend regular classes at Marquette.
With over 37,000 students and more than 7,000 employees, the University of Copenhagen is the largest institution of research and education in Denmark. The campus is located in the heart of Copenhagen. As a student at the law faculty, you will relate theory with practice during the entire study program. External lecturers who work either in the public or private sector will teach numerous classes.
An orientation will be held prior to departure.
Students will enroll in classes at the University of Copenhagen's law school. In addition, students must enroll in the Marquette Law School course Study Abroad - University of Copenhagen. Only the Marquette Law School course will appear on the student's transcript. Students will be awarded credit only for classes approved in advance by the Law School Director of Study Abroad and courses for which the student earns at least the equivalent of a grade of C. All credits awarded will receive a grade of Satisfactory unless the student fails to achieve a grade of C in any class, in which case the student's transcript will show that the student earned O credits for the course with a grade of Unsatisfactory. Students will be awarded credit for classes taken in exchange programs depending on the number of hours of classroom instruction required by the foreign school.
