Southwestern Law School Los Angeles, CA

North American Consortium on Legal Education

Southwestern believes in providing a quality legal education by participating in and promoting exchange programs with schools outside of the United States. The law school also understands the importance of the Canada-U.S.-Mexico relationship in this world of globalization and encourages its students to do the same. 

As a member of the North American Consortium on Legal Education (NACLE), Southwestern students have the opportunity to study abroad for a semester in Mexico or Canada at a member school for the same cost as tuition they would pay for classes on campus.

Member schools include:


  • McGill University (Montreal, Quebec)
  • The University of Dalhousie (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
  • The University of British Columbia (Vancouver,
    British Columbia)
  • The University of Ottawa (Ottawa, Ontario)
