International & Comparative Law Program

Situated at a major global crossroads and with an expert faculty, UCLA Law's International and Comparative Law Program rivals any in the nation.


A Global Approach to Law

The International and Comparative Law Program offers a wealth of courses, seminars, and clinics taught by top scholars, as well as prominent guest speakers, highly regarded journals, international moot court opportunities, and exciting student organizations.

The International and Comparative Law Program (ICLP) engages in research, advocacy and public education in a multitude of areas of international and comparative law. Our faculty is composed of outstanding legal scholars and renowned international visitors who make UCLA Law a focal point in these fields. Our students can pursue a specialization in international and comparative law, and attend many events, workshops, and conferences featuring eminent scholars, practitioners and jurists.

On October 15 and 16, 2020, the UCLA School of Law International and Comparative Law Program and the Transnational Program on Criminal Justice will co-sponsor the 2020 Annual Meeting of the the American Society of Comparative Law. The online meeting is entitled Comparative Legal History.

Who We Are

Resources and Other Programs

  • Foreign Legal Study and Exchange Program

    In an increasingly interconnected world, experience and familiarity with international law and other nations’ legal systems and cultures is increasingly indispensable for lawyers, legal scholars, and law students alike. Recognizing this powerful trend, UCLA School of Law offers various opportunities for our students, and for law students in other countries, to gain exposure to international law and the legal systems and cultures of other nations through our Foreign Legal Study and Exchange Program (FLSEP).

  • Interdisciplinary Study Opportunities

    UCLA School of Law has long been a leader in the interdisciplinary study of law, and unlike many other schools, UCLA law students can take courses in the professional schools and departments elsewhere on the UCLA campus, offering yet another way for students to connect to the world outside of the law school.
