Semester in Oxford Program

Since I had never been abroad before attending the Oxford Semester Program, my participation in the program greatly broadened my perspective, both in terms of experiencing another culture and in seeing the U.S. legal system through the filter of a different legal system. I currently practice labor law and my experience in the Oxford Semester Program has helped me to think more creatively which I believe makes me a better lawyer. Finally, studying abroad provided a nice break in the usual progression of three years at the same law school, taking the bar examination and practicing law; it helped keep the experience fresh and enhanced my level of involvement in the classroom.

As a two-time participant in this program, I can say with confidence that the Oxford Semester Program has given me a broader perspective, as well as greater insight, into how things work in the world. An attorney can no longer focus solely on U.S. law; rather, many will be facing international issues on a constant basis. The exposure to another legal system and another culture provided by the Oxford program prepares its participants to better meet such challenges. Additionally, the program also provides more immediate benefits: every person with whom I interviewed wanted to discuss my experiences in the Oxford Semester Program. I would strongly recommend this experience to all law students.
