2024 Deadlines

Priority deadline for WFU students to apply: Friday, January 26, 2024. After this date, we will open registration to non-WFU law students.

Final deadline for all students (WFU & Non-WFU) to apply and deposit:  Friday, March 1, 2024.

Please note that we cannot hold or award a spot in the program unless a student has met the eligibility requirements,  submitted all required application materials, and the deposit and application fee (for non-WFU students) have been received. Furthermore, spots are awarded on a first-come-first-served basis to students who have timely met the aforementioned criteria. If there are more Wake Forest students submitting registrations than there are spots in the program, a waiting list will be created.

Program Confirmation Dates

The summer study abroad program requires a minimum of 10 students to run. The law school will make a final determination regarding whether a program will be offered in March of each year based on the number of deposited students. You should complete the application process by the stated deadline; however, you should not purchase plane tickets or make additional financial commitments until you receive this confirmation from the program.
