Temple Law recently signed new partnership agreements with Riga Graduate School of Law (RGSL) in Riga, Latvia and the University of Pécs (Pécs), Faculty of Law in Pécs, Hungary. These two partnerships expand opportunities for our students to study abroad and allow Temple Law to welcome more students from Latvia and Hungary, on exchange and into the Master of Laws (LL.M.) for Foreign-Trained Lawyers Program.

Both partner law schools emphasize International and European Law, with Pécs offering many courses in English and regularly hosting international conferences and RGSL offering a range of courses in English.
