International and Comparative Law
International law consists of two distinct parts. First, public international law includes the rules that govern the relations among nation-states to create order, prevent war, and facilitate cooperation. It also includes the study of several organizations that help govern the international community, such as the United Nations. The second focus of the area is on international business law, which concerns the rights and obligations associated with international exchanges of goods, services, and capital. It, too, includes the study of several organizations that help govern international business and trade, such as the World Trade Organization.
Among a robust list of course offerings taught by full-time faculty who are experts in these areas, Moritz offers concentrated, two-week courses taught by leading practitioners in our Distinguished Practitioners in Residence program.
