Cumberland School of Law offers opportunities for non–U.S. students to study on the Samford University campus and enhances the international perspective of students in the U.S., by bringing students from other nations to campus.
In addition, two Cumberland School of Law J.D. graduates are awarded full-tuition scholarships for overseas master of law study. The law school also offers study abroad opportunities for its current J.D. students.
Master of Comparative Law (M.C.L.)
Cumberland School of Law’s Master of Comparative Law (M.C.L.) degree program is designed for graduate lawyers, judges, prosecutors and legal educators from outside the U.S., who learn about the U.S. legal system and culture; participants spend two summers taking courses in residence at Cumberland School of Law (with the option to attend the Cambridge study-abroad program) and write a thesis. The final class of M.C.L. students will receive their degree in May 2022.
LL.M. Full-Tuition Scholarships
Each year two Cumberland School of Law J.D. graduates are awarded full-tuition scholarships for studies toward an LL.M. degree at The Norwich Law School at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, England. These scholarships are part of cooperative arrangement between Cumberland School of Law and Norwich. In return, Norwich sends students to Cumberland School of Law.
