Abstract [en]

The current trend of changing strategies among individuals, social groups and educational institutions in higher education is not only determined by, but is also contributing to the so called globalisation and internationalisation processes. This is especially clear in the case of legal education, which is greatly affected by these processes whilst playing an important part in the related development of professional careers, competences and skills. This paper explores the dispersion of Swedish students, and especially law students, on different programmes and courses, and the significance of studies abroad and international connections. One conclusion is that law studies abroad contribute significantly to the domestic social differentiation among individuals, social groups and educational institutions, whereas only a small number of those is capable of taking part in the competition on foreign or international arenas.
