Application Process

Oxford Summer 2020 Application

Students who will have completed at least one academic year in good standing at an ABA-accredited law school prior to June 30 of the year they plan to participate in the summer program may apply. Graduate students in law-related fields will be considered for admission on an individual basis.

An applicant from a law school other than The Ohio State University should submit an application and a written statement from the dean or other appropriate official at his or her law school, certifying that the applicant is in good academic standing. The statement also should indicate that the applicant’s law school will accept the credit earned from the University of Oxford-The Ohio State University Summer Law Program. (If your school will not accept credit, please contact the program administrator before applying).

The application and written statement should be sent by post or email to the program administrator: Assistant Dean Laura Fernández-Álvarez, University of Oxford-The Ohio State University Summer Law Program, Moritz College of Law, 55 W. 12th Ave., Columbus, Ohio, 43210. Assistant Dean Laura Fernández-Álvarez, can be reached by phone at (614) 688-5328 or by email at

A deposit of $300 (check or money order payable to The Ohio State University) is due with the application and will be applied to the application and administration fee. One-hundred dollars ($100) of the deposit is refundable if a student withdraws from the program by March 15. Otherwise, the $300 deposit is refundable only if a student is not admitted into the program or if the program is cancelled. Total program costs must be paid in full by June 15. Except in the event of program cancellation, amounts paid for the balance of program costs are not refundable.

Total enrollment in the program is limited, and eligible applicants will be admitted into the program on a first-come-first-served basis; so applications should be made as early as possible. It is strongly recommended that all applications be made on or before March 1.

The Ohio State University reserves the right to cancel this program in the event of under enrollment or other compelling circumstances that prevent the program from being held. All fees will be immediately returned in the event of cancellation.

Medical Insurance

While participating in an Ohio State study abroad program, students are required to maintain their primary insurance coverage. As part of the program, students also receive supplemental insurance through GeoBlue Travel Insurance for the duration of their study abroad program. This insurance is provided as a part of the Study Abroad Program Fee and supplements a student’s current health insurance.
