This is the one of the newest Semester Exchange Programs approved by UNC School of Law faculty and began Spring 2018. It is our first Exchange program in South America. The fall semester in Buenos Aires runs from August to mid-November and the spring semester runs from March to mid-June.
Second- and third-year UNC law students may take 12-15 credit
hours at Universidad Austral which are applicable toward their J.D. degree from
UNC-Chapel Hill School of Law. Students are able to choose from a broad
selection of classes to fit their particular interests.
The official language of instruction at Universidad Austral is Spanish, however, there are offered English-taught law sections, including International Business Transactions, International Arbitration, Sports Law, International Development Cooperation, Common Law Institutions, and Inter-American Human Rights System.
Students with proficiency in Spanish may take Spanish-taught law classes in addition to these. UNC students should consult with the registrar’s office to avoid any overlap with classes that students have taken or plan to take at UNC School of Law.
Universidad Austral is one of our newest
exchange programs and we are excited to offer this new opportunity to students
at UNC School of Law. For more information on life in Buenos Aires, check out Universidad Austral’s

Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, is a diverse and beautiful city mixing a long history with new charms. The city is very well known for its fast-paced rhythm, its ethnic diversity and its eclectic architecture or urban design. It is not easy to wrap one’s mind around the people and the local identity, the numerous traditions, Argentina’s complex history, the greatly contrasting urban scenery, the vast cultural and artistic offering. Living in Buenos Aires is an interesting and intense experience.
