Norway law exchange program suspended

Exchange program between The University of North Dakota’s (UND) Law School and the University of Oslo (UiO) has been suspended.

UND officials say an exchange program between the UND law school and the UiO in Norway has been suspended after 27 years.

UND’s interim provost, Paul LeBel, says the UiO is raising questions about sending students to the United States rather than having them take European Union study programs.

He says UND is preparing a new proposal and he believes the exchange will continue in some form.

Only two Norwegian students attended UND law classes this spring, and UND doesn’t plan to send any students to Norway this summer. Officials say the summer exchange was suspended because of accreditation problems.
