Penn State Law Bergen Study Abroad Program

Students will have the opportunity to spend one semester studying at the University Of Bergen Faculty of Law. The Faculty of Law is home to about 2000 students. The faculty offers foremost expertise in criminal law and criminal theory. Also, many of the senior researchers are devoted to human rights law and welfare law. The faculty has strong research interests in private law, and research areas of priority include competition law and EU law, as well as intellectual property law. 

The law school offers a large number of courses taught in English. The law school is located in the City Center of Bergen and provides students with many opportunities to take part in Bergen’s rich cultural life. Bergen is a student-friendly town, and students will find plenty to do. Students can enjoy the beautiful fjords and mountains of Western Norway by hiking as a part of the seven-mountain trip. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in student organizations, such as Juristforeningen and the European Law Student Association (ELSA) both of which are very active on campus. If students study during the fall semester they will have the opportunity to participate in the one-week Buddy program which allows students to be paired with a Bergen student who helps them become acquainted with Bergen.
