The College of Law has signed a transatlantic summer school joint venture with four US law schools and is planning to sign another deal with a school in New York as it bids to create the first global law school.
The international initiative brings the UK law school together with California Western School of Law, New England School of Law, South Texas College of Law and William Mitchell College in Minnesota.
The US law schools have already formed a consortium for international legal education, which the UK College of Law considers to be the beginnings of a US College of Law.
Dean Harry Haynsworth, president of William Mitchell says: "We are looking forward to the development of further joint ventures."
Nigel Savage, the College of Law's UK chief executive says: "The practice of law has become global and legal education must follow. Hopefully this venture will be the first of a series of global partnerships creating the first global law school."
