International and Comparative Law Practice Concentration

Legal practice continues to globalize at a rapid pace, and forward-looking lawyers must anticipate that their practices will involve transnational issues, even where the clients are local. Based on this understanding, the School of Law offers a concentration in international and comparative law. The concentration requires foundational courses in constitutional law and civil procedure as well as electives that allow students to specialize in areas of interest, including private and commercial law, human rights, national and international security, and criminal justice matters. When students have completed the coursework required for the concentration, they will have developed a solid understanding of international and comparative legal issues that should prepare them for the globalized legal marketplace of today.
