WashU BLSA understands the unique needs and challenges that you might face when obtaining a J.D. and/or L.L.M in the Unites States. We will assist you in any way we can.

Whether you are coming to law school from a U.S. undergraduate institution or directly coming from your home country, you will still have to maintain your current immigration status. As an international student, you must be aware of potential limitations as to employment authorization, which can often be a long and stressful process.

Please direct any questions/inquiry/concerns pertaining to externships, paid off-campus summer employment, and post-graduation employment to your OISS advisor.

Here is the Washington University website dedicated to international students’ matters:
