This fall, ten students from six of our exchange partner law schools are studying or conducting doctoral-level research at HLS. We hope you’ll have a chance to meet these visiting students.

In addition, 14 HLS J.D. and S.J.D. students will be studying abroad in eight countries this fall, at exchange partner schools or through an independent semester abroad, and three third-year J.D. students will soon begin studying in the other Cambridge under the Harvard Law School and University of Cambridge J.D./LL.M. Joint Degree Program.
Beginning today, 183 members of the LL.M. Class of 2020 and 10 international exchange students will be arriving on campus, joining ten new S.J.D. candidates who began work over the summer. Together, our LL.M., S.J.D. and exchange students represent 66 countries and jurisdictions, from A (Argentina) to Z (Zimbabwe).

Every year, Harvard Law School’s LL.M. (Master of Laws) program includes a significant number of students who work in or with the judiciary. The LL.M. Class of 2019, with eight current or former judges, 18 Supreme or Constitutional Court clerks, and a district magistrate, is no exception. On March 14, four of the judges gathered in Pound Hall for a panel discussion on “Judicial Leadership Around the Globe.”
The participants included (from left) Emil Nordin, Junior Judge, Svea Court of Appeal, Sweden; Etiene Coelho Martins, Judge, Federal Judiciary of Brazil; Sherif Ayoub, Junior Judge, Administrative Court of Cairo; and Chikondi Mandala, Assistant Registrar, High Court of Malawi. The session was moderated by Hon. John C. Cratsley (Retired), who served for 24 years on the Massachusetts Superior Court and now teaches the Judicial Process in Trial Courts clinic and seminar at HLS.
The program was presented by the HLS Graduate Program and the Harvard Law School Library.
