Today’s legal practice and legal institutions are unavoidably multinational as the world has become more global and countries more interconnected. Legal rules that previously affected domestic matters are now often subject to the laws of numerous jurisdictions, which is why the understanding International Law has become more and more necessary.

The Program

Our International Law program, generally for American law graduates, provides students with the background necessary to recognize, understand and manage problems arising in the international legal order, including:

  • International trade
  • Investment
  • Business
  • Environmental problems
  • Protection of human rights
