Concentration in International and Comparative Law

  • Each Concentration student must complete at least 10 credits of coursework in international and comparative law. Three 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 six 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 three-credit "International Law" course will completely satisfy the Concentration requirements. (Availability of these programs is limited. Please refer to the Study Abroad page for further information and requirements.)

Please Note: Directed research projects and seminar papers that fulfill the substantial writing requirement must be approved in advanced. 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.
