Two-Year Juris Doctor for Foreign-Trained Lawyers

The Two-Year J.D. for Foreign-Trained Lawyers is for overseas students who already hold a foreign law degree and are prepared to complete a J.D. on an accelerated timetable. The program prepares attorneys who can compete in a global economy with full credentials in the United States and one or more additional jurisdictions.

While on campus, students benefit from classes taught by distinguished faculty members; enjoy life in Lawrence; and meet other highly motivated colleagues from around the country and the world. From KU Law's perspective, students with foreign law degrees bring valuable diversity and professionalism to the classroom and expand the school's global professional network of students and graduates.
