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.
The University of Copenhagen offers classes in English but students who speak Danish are also encouraged to take classes offered in Danish. For more information about the University of Copenhagen Law School visit their website
. Only two students may participate in any exchange program per semester.
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.

Grades and Credit Transfer:

You cannot take classes pass/fail at your host institution.
Full Time Status:
You are required to take the equivalent of at least 12 U.S. credits while abroad
. This program runs on the ECTS system (European Credit Transfer System). 2 ECTS credits counts for 1 US credit. A course worth 6 ECTS will transfer back to Marquette as 3 US credits. You will need to take 24 ECTS credits at the University of Copenhagen during the semester.
Students can choose to live in university housing or live off-campus. For more information on housing, visit the University of Copenhagen's website.
