Today’s law school graduates enter a world in which little stops at the borders between nations. Stanford Law School's approach to international law offers an integrated combination of innovative coursework and complementary research opportunities, together with outreach activities that embrace our increasingly interdependent world and the complexity of global change. Our faculty bring in-depth experience to their groundbreaking, policy-shaping research, and they are deeply committed to mentoring students. A guiding premise of Stanford’s Program in International and Comparative Law is the notion that world-class scholarship and real world developments should shape one another. Our program – from our faculty to our courses to research and career opportunities for our students – are built upon this premise.
