International and Comparative Law

  • Each Concentration student must complete at least 10 credits of coursework in international and comparative law. 3 of those credits must include the Law School's International Law course.
  • Each Concentration student must also complete a substantial research paper on an international or comparative law topic.
  • Students may earn up to 6 credits from SLU LAW's Summer Program in Madrid that will count toward the Concentration's 10 credits of coursework requirement.
  • Completion of one of the Center's semester abroad programs in France, Ireland, or Switzerland and the 3 credit International Law course will completely satisfy the Concentration requirements. (Availability of these programs is limited. Please refer to the Study Abroad page on the website for further information and requirements.)

Please Note: Directed research projects and seminar papers that fulfill the substantial writing requirement must be approved in advance. If the paper is written for a seminar or class offered through the Center, that faculty member will review the paper for the writing requirement. If the paper is written for a class outside of the Center, the topic must be pre-approved and subsequently reviewed by a member of the CICL faculty with that area of expertise. Each student planning to obtain the Concentration must complete the application for a Concentration in International and Comparative Law and return it to Assistant Director, Ira Herenda Trako in room 937.
