Your next steps
Identify 4-6 programs of interest
Law exchange placements are competitive, typically accepting a maximum of 2 students per program, up to a total of 20-25 students per year. (These limits are determined by multiple factors, including balancing the number of incoming international students and ensuring that enough students are in Calgary for courses to run as normal.)
For this reason, we strongly recommend identifying at least 4 programs that you are interested in, and ideally 6 programs. You will be able to specify your order of preference and priorities in the application, but having back-ups will give you the best chance of being selected.
Attend an info session
The info session is a great opportunity for you to meet your advisors, learn more about how law exchanges work, and ensure you are on track to apply. You can find the info session details at the top of this page.
The info session will also present any known available options for the summer, in case you are unable to pursue a semester abroad.
If you miss the info session, you can still apply for an exchange. Please just read this page carefully and contact an advisor if you have any questions.
Prepare your application
Your preparations should include: reviewing the program pages, checking course offerings, requesting 1 reference letter from a UCalgary Law instructor, and filling out the online application.
You will ultimately fill out 1 online application form for each program you are applying to. Start by "saving" your applications, until you have all 4-6 program applications "saved". Once you're ready, you can "submit" your top 3 applications and rank them in your order of priority (note: the application system will not allow you to "submit" more than 3 applications).
