For students who are interested in a career involving international law, foreign law, or transactions and activities that cross borders, completing the international and comparative law concentration will help to distinguish them from other job applicants and give them the confidence and skills to practice in a global setting. The international and comparative law concentration allows students the flexibility of taking courses in international trade and business, public international law and human rights, and foreign legal systems. Many students in the concentration choose to go abroad on one of the school’s exchange programs.
Students are required to take International Law, Comparative Law, and the Advanced Topics in International Law Seminar and to write a paper of publishable quality on some aspect of international or comparative law. The concentration adviser may waive one of the three required courses for students who are studying abroad, if they have completed an equivalent course.
