The USD London Program is based at the Dickson Poon School of Law at King's College London (KCL). Established in 1831, the Dickson Poon School of Law is one of the oldest law schools in England and ranked among the top law schools in the world. The Dickson Poon School of Law is housed in the recently-renovated 1st-century Somerset House East Wing on KCL’s campus near the Strand, in the heart of the British legal and political world and surrounded major global law firms. The School’s state-of-the-art facilities were opened by Her Majesty the Queen in February 2012. Since 2013, USD School of Law and the Dickson Poon School of Law have had an exchange program pursuant to which students from each school are able to visit the other for a semester or year, respectively. The USD London Summer Program was relocated to the Dickson Poon School of Law in 2015.
