The core of the Stanford Program in International and Comparative Law is our curriculum.  Although Stanford is the smallest of the country’s leading law schools, with an enrollment of only 180 students per class, we offer an extensive international and comparative law curriculum, the breadth of which is matched only by its excellence.  Each year, Stanford Law School typically offers more than 20 international and comparative law courses, ranging from introductory international law classes to more specialized public law courses in human rights law, the law of war, international environmental law, and technology and globalization; from international economic law courses in international trade regulation and international state-building to courses in transnational legal practice areas like transnational litigation, international investment law, international dealmaking, international tax, and international intellectual property; from area studies courses like European Union law, law and society in international perspective, and Chinese law and business to courses in international conflict resolution.  In these courses, students and faculty explore evolving global lawmaking and international judicial processes, questions of global justice, and the dramatic changes in the transnational political, security, and business environments.
