International Law

We are committed to helping students develop into lawyers who thrive in an increasingly global profession, providing them with the knowledge, experience, and skills to serve clients who confront complex international problems.

The College of Law boasts a long and strong history of preparing students for the global practice of law. Our rich international law curriculum spans courses in both public and private international law, as well as comparative (foreign) law. The combined experience of our internationally recognized faculty remarkably encompasses nearly 200 years. Among the available courses are international law and dispute resolution, international business transactions, foreign relations law, international arbitration and litigation, immigration and refugee law, global sustainability, maritime law, and comparative law.

The JD, LLM in Transnational Law, and MLS programs offer additional opportunities for students, including the student-edited Willamette Journal of International Law and Dispute Resolution, a certificate program in international and comparative law, and the international law moot court competition.
