For students who are interested in a career in international law, completing the international and comparative law concentration will help to distinguish them from other job applicants and will give them a broad knowledge of the subject area. The international and comparative law concentration allows students the flexibility of taking courses either in international trade and business, public international law and human rights, or comparative law. Many students in the concentration choose to go abroad on one of the school’s foreign exchange programs.
Students are required to take Public 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.
