International law and comparative studies have become essential components of legal education. To provide clients with competitive service, a modern lawyer must reach beyond knowledge of American law, especially in the areas of commercial, corporate, tax and human rights law.
For more than 30 years, SLU LAW has demonstrated its commitment to international legal education. Through its educational programs and scholarly activities, the Center for International and Comparative Law ensures that graduates have the education they need to pursue professional opportunities throughout the world.
The Center builds networks and alliances locally and internationally, making the School of Law a Midwestern hub for legal scholarship in international and comparative law. Regional law practices provide contact to global transactions, and the Center provides high-quality legal talent that is conversant and comfortable with other cultures and legal environments.
