Study Abroad


The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa and the William S. Richardson School of Law both have formal and informal exchange agreements with prestigious universities across the region, affording you rich opportunities to study abroad.


In the past, PALS students have gone to to every corner of the Pacific and Asia, engaging in exchanges at a myriad of universities, which were specifically tailored to advance their legal studies together with their professional/personal development goals.


Why Study Abroad


By learning outside the United States as a JD student concentrating in PALS, you will be able to specialize your studies by availing courses which are not offered at our school. As well, learning within a different socio-cultural context with a distinctly unique perspective on the law, you will develop a much richer legal acumen that transcends cultural divides. Of course, while studying at your university abroad, you will also be immersed in a different culture, learning how to navigate cross-cultural exchanges with professionals in the field, all the while developing your language skills.



Studying abroad in Tokyo gave me the chance to see Richardson’s Pacific-Asian Legal Studies program in action. Meeting and getting to know the alumni that have succeeded there really validated my decision to attend the University of Hawaiʻi. Studying law in another country is an amazing way to expand the horizons of what is possible for your legal career, and I would recommend it for every student.
