North America’s borders are not barriers, but doorways to enrichment, education, and opportunity.

Learn the Law. Live the Culture.

The North American Consortium on Legal Education (NACLE) is comprised of 13 participating law schools in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. NACLE seeks to promote and share an understanding of the legal systems within North American countries, as well as enhance the capabilities of each member to provide high quality legal education and research appropriate to the demands of the professional environment in North America.

NACLE Organizational and Administrative Documents

With grant support from the Canadian, Mexican, and U.S. governments, NACLE was created in 1998. Driven by common interests and economic ties, NACLE provides a forum for legal study and practice that transcends national boundaries. NACLE offers law students the opportunity to participate in semester-long exchange programs at our member universities. Since its inception, NACLE has uniquely contributed to the collaboration between its member governments and academic institutions.
With top legal scholars, students and practitioners from 13 research-based institutions, NACLE aims to increase the quality of legal education and cooperation between public and private sectors in the member countries. Through annual conferences, student exchanges and academic paper competitions, NACLE creates for the North American legal community an opportunity to dialogue, learn and better understand neighboring legal systems.
