The Center for International and Comparative Law is the nucleus for all of the law school's international law programs, including our LL.M. programs, summer study abroad programs, and other international activities and internships. The Center's mission includes:

  • Enhancing the curriculum and teaching of international and comparative law at the school;
  • Conducting legal and empirical research on key issues in international and comparative law;
  • Promoting law reform and legal infrastructure development in developing countries; and
  • Fostering greater knowledge and understanding of the global dimensions of law through linkages with institutions in countries around the world.
