International Practica

To support two pillars of St. John’s University's strategic plan – Globalization and Student Engagement – in the fall of 2011, the Law School faculty approved the first International Practicum for St. John’s law students. With a curriculum designed to allow students to complete 12 hours of academic credit while working overseas full-time for a semester, International Practica open unique opportunities for in-depth experiential learning across the spectrum of international and transnational legal practice.

The inaugural offering, the NATO Practicum, is hosted by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s Allied Command Transformation (NATO ACT) in Mons, Belgium, students will work full time within the Office of Legal Education, the division of ACT responsible for legal support, continuing legal education, and legal interoperability for over 60 NATO legal offices around the world.
