With each new technological advance, the world becomes both smaller and more complex. The rapid increase in global economic integration, inter-governmental cooperation, and the frequency and complexity of international business transactions have brought about a profusion of new legal challenges. International human rights problems have highlighted a need for legal experts who have an understanding of other countries' cultures, as well as their legal systems. These are but a few of the reasons feeding the demand for more and better-trained attorneys with a proficiency in international and comparative law.
The School of Law provides a rich variety of foreign study opportunities, proximity to a global capital, and an international faculty prepares students to succeed in the global practice of law. With the foundation provided by the curriculum and the varied opportunities for foreign legal experience, our alumni are pursuing careers across nearly the full breadth of substantive international legal fields, both in the United States and abroad.
