Core Requirements:

Introduction to International Law

This foundational course (three units) introduces students to the basic notions of international and comparative law. It is always offered two times a year, and often three (summer, fall and spring).

Students need to be in good standing at all times, and honors will be awarded only to students who achieve at least an A- average in all courses counted towards satisfaction of the Concentration.

Advanced Electives:

A minimum of six units in advanced elective courses must be successfully completed. Students seeking to specialize in one of the three available Sub-Concentrations (International Economic Law; International Criminal and Human Rights Law; International and Comparative Law), must complete a minimum of six units from the specific Sub-Concentration. Courses with an asterisk (*) are those expected to be offered for 2013-2014.

Also, please note that all students enrolled in this concentration – and especially those who plan to do writing projects, clinics, seminars or work as staffers and editors at the International and Comparative Law Review – are strongly advised to take, preferably during their second year, the International and Foreign Legal Research class.
