The Center for International and Comparative Law

The Center for International and Comparative Law creates a dynamic space for scholars and students to explore the interactions among international and domestic legal systems of the world and to engage both theory and practice for effective study and promotion of the rule of law.

International law, both public and private, cannot be understood without a working knowledge of comparative politics, history, and culture. By tapping into Emory University’s rich and vast resources, Emory Law encourages an interdisciplinary and experiential study of international law that prepares you to make an immediate impact in the legal world.
