International Consortium for Global Legal Education

The International Consortium for Global Legal Education provides students, (recent) graduates, and faculty of Consortium Partner Universities the opportunity to promote a diverse global legal community, develop best practices in legal education, and encourage research.

Recent graduates of Consortium Partner Universities qualify for additional benefits, including dual-enrollment opportunities, scholarships, and the option of earning a third degree, the M.S. in Law and Policy. NSU College of Law offers a limited number of opportunities for current students at Consortium Partner Universities to enroll at NSU Law while still studying at their home institution through a dual-enrollment option.

To request to join the International Consortium, please contact Shahabudeen K. Khan, Associate Dean of International Programs, at shahabud@nova.edu

The Accelerated Juris Doctor Program

NSU Law offers both students and recent graduates of Consortium Partner Universities the opportunity to enroll in its Accelerated Juris Doctor For Foreign Lawyers Program.

Dual Enrollment for Current Consortium Partner University Students

Most candidates for the Accelerated JD Program are individuals who already have earned their first degree in law. However, for Consortium Partner Universities, NSU Law offers a limited number of opportunities for its current students to enroll at NSU Law while still studying at their home institution. The Dual-Enrollment option requires the acceptance by Consortium Partner Universities of NSU Law JD credits to help students simultaneously complete their law studies.
A Consortium Partner University that seeks to offer the dual-enrollment option will coordinate with NSU Law to identify the particular course of study that will assure that the dual-enrolled student can fulfill all graduation and licensure obligations in both jurisdictions. Schools need not offer the dual-enrollment option to participate in the Consortium.

Scholarships for Consortium Partner University Graduates and Students

In recognition of the importance of the Consortium to the advancement of global legal education, NSU Law provides an additional annual scholarship of $3,000 to students who either received their first law degree at a Consortium Partner University or who currently are enrolled in a first degree law program at a Consortium Partner University. This scholarship is in addition to any other award received by the student.
Annual tuition and fees for the Accelerated JD Program are equal to the current academic year tuition charged by NSU Law. Both merit scholarships and tuition adjustments are available to all applicants. For additional information regarding tuition, scholarships and tuition adjustments, please see The Accelerated Juris Doctor Program

Faculty Training

The Consortium also creates an opportunity for member schools to collaborate on teaching, scholarship, learning, and methods that increase student success.
NSU Law will offer an annual, one-week intensive training program for junior Consortium faculty. This program will emphasize training faculty to use active pedagogy. Participants will learn how to develop workshops, clinical education, and formative assessment methodologies to make them stronger educators. They will also receive support on their academic research and become part of a global exchange network. See Faculty Training Workshops dropdown on this page.

Faculty Exchanges

Consortium Partner Universities are encouraged to provide faculty exchange opportunities.  The funding, length of stay, and other details for each particular exchange will be coordinated at the time arrangements are made. NSU Law is also happy to offer research accommodation to Consortium Partner University law faculty hoping to complete research in the United States.
