Howard University School of Law Exchange

UNM School of LawStudents at the University of New Mexico School of Law can spend a semester at Howard University School of Law through an exchange program that began in the Fall 2010 semester. Up to two UNM law students every semester can take advantage of this program, which provides them with a unique exposure to Howard’s legal programs and the chance to take advantage of opportunities in Washington, D.C. They also will benefit from a strong and supportive UNM alumni community.

UNM law applicants must be in the top half of their class at the time of application and they will pay UNM tuition as usual.

Alumni Support

In addition to unmatched educational opportunities available only in the nation’s capital, UNM law students who spend a semester at Howard University will enjoy resources and support from a vibrant UNM School of Law alumni community. An alumni committee whose members live and work in the Washington, D.C. area have come together to ensure that every UNM law student succeeds during their time at Howard, or when working, interning or externing in the Washington, D.C. area.
