International, Comparative, and Foreign Law

Flags of many nations from around the world

We live in an increasingly globalized, interdependent world.

If you are interested in a legal career involving diplomacy, counseling government agencies, nonprofit advocacy, trade law, cross-border transactions, private practice abroad, and international arbitration, then this Concentration is for you.

The Concentration in international, comparative, and foreign law integrates three sub-fields of law that provide paths for legal practice in multilateral institutions, government agencies, NGOs, law firms, and private sector work involving international and transnational law.


Courses + Faculty

Foundational, electives in specialized areas, and experiential courses compose the international, comparative, and foreign law Concentration. You are also encouraged to take a writing course.

For full requirements, current students can log into Lawnet.
