The Center for International Law and Policy enables students and faculty to collaborate on research and analysis of current international legal issues. Students can immerse themselves in the practice of international law during domestic and international externships with the goal of becoming an international lawyer.
Associate Professor Lisa J. Laplante, the center’s director, teaches courses on human rights, transitional justice, and international law.
New England Law offers a wealth of international law studies and opportunities for aspiring international lawyers, including focused courses, legal research projects for a variety of advocacy institutions, an Immigration Law concentration, and semester-long externships in The Hague, London, and Washington. Our students have the opportunity to explore several international law programs and become well-versed in international law issues, while gaining firsthand experience.
