Our law school prepares its students for practice in a global legal environment.
Through a robust range of courses and on- and off-campus opportunities, we seek to bring the world to our students, and our students to the world.
Our marquee Whitney R. Harris World Law Institute, the centerpiece of international and comparative scholarly research at the law school, brings top speakers to the law school each year and provides opportunities for students to participate in cutting-edge legal research.
Students can study abroad or pursue dual degrees (JD/master’s) through the Transnational Law Program or through joint ventures with the University of Queensland in Australia or the Sorbonne in France. They participate in internships abroad—often for course credit—both in the private sector and for governmental, intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations. In their second and third years, students can work for the Global Studies Law Review or compete on one of our interscholastic international law moot court teams.
During the summer, students can attend the Summer Institute for International Law and Policy in The Netherlands or take advantage of the Dagen-Legomsky Fellowships to study at The Hague Academy of International Law or intern with high-level public interest organizations abroad.
