International Programs

At Cornell Law, we have had a passion for international law and commitment to global engagement since our founding in 1887. As a result, we offer one of the country's oldest and most distinguished programs in international and comparative legal education. International understanding and perspective are a cornerstone of what we believe make "lawyers in the best sense."

The Clarke Center for International and Comparative Legal Studies was established in 2002 by a gift from Jack G. ’52 and Dorothea Clarke. The Clarke Center built on the international and comparative law foundation established by the Leo and Arvilla Berger International Legal Studies Program, which brings international students and scholars to Cornell Law School, supports faculty research and student projects dealing with matters of international law, and engages practicing lawyers and business leaders in this area as guest speakers whose collective expertise enriches our understanding of how international legal agreements help to govern the world.
