About the International and Comparative Law Program

With an expansive faculty, a wealth of courses, seminars and clinics, prominent colloquia and symposia, highly regarded student-edited journals, international moot court opportunities, exciting student organizations and the strength and support of a cohesive global community, UCLA Law’s International and Comparative Law Program rivals any in the nation.

Our faculty is composed of outstanding legal scholars and renowned international visitors who make UCLA Law a focal point for scholarship in the field.  Faculty scholarship and our students’ experience is enhanced by the eminent scholars, practitioners and jurists who regularly speak and present at our school.

At UCLA Law opportunities for practical training in international and comparative law are nearly boundless. Some students spend an entire semester abroad via the Foreign Legal Study and Exchange Program, while others pursue international externships with the U.S. State Department and other agencies.  Advanced degrees, joint degrees, and interdisciplinary coursework are all available.
