International & Comparative Law Concentration Track

The University of Washington is a world-class center for international study, and the Law School is no exception. International and Comparative Law are offered in two J.D. concentration tracks and in two LL.M. programs, so all students benefit from the expertise of the faculty and variety of courses available. Students at the School publish the Washington International Law Journal, a leading chronicle of developments and legal trends in countries around the Pacific Rim.

International concerns permeate areas like Intellectual Property and Contracts, courses not ordinarily considered "international." The integrated approach taken by the School's faculty, however, ensures that all students are exposed to comparative law concepts. Thanks to this broad view, students particularly interested in international and comparative law have ample opportunity to discover and explore the facets that interest them most.
