International Law Program

While a successful lawyer must necessarily be an expert in his or her own legal system, our increasingly interdependent world needs lawyers able to go beyond their own jurisdictions to succeed in international or transnational environments. The modern international lawyer must have a working knowledge of other legal systems, cultural sensitivity and language skills, plus the transactional and dispute-resolution competencies necessary to represent clients effectively in this ever-expanding field.

The international and comparative law program at Pace Law School is designed to prepare future international lawyers for success in the public and private spheres.

Students benefit from the distinguished credentials and professional achievements of the Pace faculty in areas as diverse as international arbitration, environmental regulation, international sales, trade law and human rights. An international law program of study at Pace might include a summer internship at a war-crimes tribunal or an externship placement in a US or overseas office of an international law firm.  Students may also compete against teams from around the world in some of the most prestigious moot court programs, as well as participate in lectures and panel discussions sponsored by the International Law Society. Students are responsible for editing the Pace International Law Review, which provides a forum for students, faculty, and outside scholars to publish their research on international topics.
