CUSLI Student Exchange Program:

The CUSLI Student Exchange Program provides second and third year law students at CWRU Law and Western Law with the opportunity to study at the other academic institution for a semester with a full transfer of academic credit. The American Bar Association has accredited the program since its inception and presently two students from each law school may participate in program on an annual basis. Students provide all tuition to their home schools and CUSLI assists these students with travel expenses by providing stipends in the amount of US$1,500.00 to each participant.

Based on the success of this program, CWRU Law has established a similar exchange relationship with the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law (Ottawa, ON) and Western Law likewise has similar relationships with Washington College of Law, American University (Washington, D.C.), Washington and Lee University (Lexington, Virginia), and Southwestern University School of Law (Los Angeles, CA). Consequently, approximately four U.S. students attend Canadian legal institutions per academic year, and eight Canadian law students attend U.S. institutions, under the auspices of CUSLI.

CUSLI Faculty Exchange Program:

CUSLI re-launched its Faculty Exchange Program in 2006 as U.S. Director Prof. Richard Gordon visited Western Law and presented a lecture to his Canadian colleagues and students. CWRU Law will host Western Law Prof. Erika Chamberlain in Spring 2008 for a similar visit. The host universities have agreed to provide a stipend to the professors as well as reimburse all travel expenses. The respective universities intend to host a visit from their sister university each semester (resulting in four total visits per year).
