Global and Comparative Law

Today's increasing globalization has increased the importance of international and foreign law concerning both individual rights and commercial transactions. UST has both a growing curriculum in global and comparative law and a growing contingent of faculty with interests in global law and development.

All focused course work at UST Law consists of foundational courses that introduce the subject area, upper-level theory and practice courses that provide an academic background necessary for success, and experiential learning courses that provide students with the chance to apply their learning in simulations or outside the classroom.

The Supervised Research and Writing course (independent study), the Mentor Externship program, and the public service requirements can also be used to support focused course work.
