The Latest News

Celebrating a half-century of Notre Dame Law in London

Notre Dame Law School embarked on a unique experiment in legal education in the fall of 1968.

Instead of spending the 1968-69 academic year at the South Bend campus, 20 members of the Law School’s second-year class would study in London.

The launch of the London Law Program made Notre Dame the only law school where students could earn credit toward an American law degree while studying in England, and it is the only full-year London program approved by the American Bar Association. Read more about the program's history here.

Notre Dame Law School and Notre Dame International have been celebrating the 50th anniversary of the London Law Program throughout 2018. The culminating celebration is scheduled for October 20-23 in London. Visit for more information.
